All I know about it is that I had it. It sits on your hard drive for 14 days before damaging the system. It's very easy to get rid of, though.
Go to Start, and then click your 'Find' or 'Search' option. In the folder option, type the name... jdbgmgr. Be sure to search your C Drive and all the sub folders and any other drives you may have. Click 'Find Now'. The virus has a teddy bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe Do not open it! Go to Edit (on the menubar) and choose "Select All" to
highlight the file without opening it. Now go to File (on the menu bar) and select delete. It will then go to the recycle bin. Empty the recycle bin.  If you find the virus, you must contact all the people in your Address Book so that they may eradicate the virus from their own address books.

It is a hoax, not a virus!
Though, there is a virus or mask that sends this hoax, and also infects the windows file mentioned in the hoax. The right way to get rid of it is using anti-virus tools. Do not delete anything! And do not send the "warning" to anyone.

A good idea with any email you get is to check on its validity.  This is one of the oldest hoaxes around still in strong circulation, from the NT days.  When you get a warning check with Norton, and McAfee for any news on what you get.  They have a cooperative databank so you should be able to get an answer fairly quickly.  Also get some antivirus software to scan your computer.  Norton and McAfee are virtually the same, especially since they started sharing data with eachother.
