I got an email from my brother asking me if a virus warning going around telling people to delete the “jdbgmgr.exe” file from their computers was a hoax or not.

Second link in google search for “jdbgmgr.exe”: Virus Hoax Making The Rounds – ‘JDBGMGR.EXE’

It is strange how people will pass this stuff on rather than just doing some simple checking. I got an email last year from someone passing on a “Hillary C. refused to see reps from Gold Star Mothers, isn’t that terrible?!?”. So, you go to the website of Gold Star Mothers, and there on the frontpage is “We would appreciate it if the e-mails and negative comments about Senator Clinton would cease.”

People like a good story (regardless of the harm) and don’t care too much about the truth.
