virus or spoof

I have just received an e-mail from a known contact advising me about a virus not seen by mcafee or norton and is spread via e-mail address book.

So called virus is jdbgmgr.exe

with a teddy bear icon.

Not sure if this is a real threat or a ruse to spread the virus further, by getting you to inform all your contacts.

any thoughts

Untrue, teddy is a ferocious predator who will devour your hard disk and spit the bits out through the PSW fan port at the back. If he should escape call the RSPCA. ;-)

Seiously if you get any messages suggesting that a virus can't be seen by anti virus it may be well intentioned, but it's almost certainly wrong, but do make sure your anti virus is kept updated.
