    I'm writing about a Virus I was warned about and found on my computer, here it is.

    This virus apparently takes a while for it to be activated. So I am e-mailing all of you to tell you how you can check and delete the virus. It is very simple. The virus is spread through email. If your computer has this virus, anyone you've emailed in the past month could have it too. This virus supposedly is programmed to activate after being on your C drive for awhile. Because of the delay in activation, it does not get picked up by the anti virus programs like McAfee or Norton. No one knows how long this virus has been on the system. It is possible that it has been around for several months. When it does become active, it will erase all files and folders on your hard drive. The virus gets spread when you send out emails and filters into C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND in order to find this virus follow the following instructions:
    Click on "start"
    Choose "search" or "find"
    Choose "files and folders"
    Select "find"
    Select "C drive"
    Name of the file to search for: SULFNBK.EXE
    If you find this file, DO NOT OPEN IT!
    Select by right clicking on your mouse and DELETE it. Then close the window and EMPTY your RECYCLE BIN. The good news is that YOU HAVE ELIMINATED THE VIRUS on YOUR computer. The bad news is that you have transmitted this virus to anyone you may have E-mailed in the last month - thus the reason for this message. Please contact everyone in your address book and pass this message along
    The pessimist says the cup is half empty. The optimist says it's half full. The pragmatist says its liquid contents are at 50% capacity. The ironist says its half full of air. The plumber says the cup must be leaking. George Carlin says the cup is too big. The Starbucks employee says its so you have room for cream. The conspiracy theorist says aliens took the other half. The baseball player says his cup is definitely full. MacGuyver says he can build a powerful explosive with it. The psychoanalyst says the cup is your mother. The punk sitting next to you also says the cup is your mother. The romance novelist says the cup is a willing receptacle to the wild gushing torrents of pure passion from the hard chiseled urn. The zen master says There is no cup. Pamela Anderson says her cups are definitely full. Me? Refill!

    Symantec Security Response encourages you to ignore any messages regarding this hoax. It is harmless and is intened only to cause unwarranted concern.

    Type: Hoax


    The following hoax email was first reported in Brazil. The original email is in Portuguese; it is followed by several other versions.


    * This particular email message is a hoax. The file that is mentioned in the hoax, however, Sulfnbk.exe, is a Microsoft Windows utility that is used to restore long file names, and like any .exe file, it can be infected by a virus that targets .exe files.
    * The virus/worm W32.Magistr.24876@mm can arrive as an attachment named Sulfnbk.exe. The Sulfnbk.exe file used by Windows is located in the C:\Windows\Command folder. If the file is located in any other folder, or arrives as an attachment to a email message, then it is possible that the file is infected. In this case, if a scan with the latest virus definitions and with NAV set to scan all files does not detect the file as being infected, quarantine and submit the file to SARC for analysis by following the instructions in the document How to submit a file to SARC using Scan and Deliver.
    * If you have deleted the Sulfnbk.exe file from the C:\Windows\Command folder and want to know how to restore the file, see the How to restore the Sulfnbk.exe file section at the end of this document.

    Hope that helps you about what you were told.
    C'mon baby, finish me!

    Yeah, it's all a hoax - and it's been suggested that you don't forward it to anybody else and instill panic. [img]smile.gif[/img]
