2Z's - yup - my bad - it was the SULFNBX.EXE hoax I was thinking of - I went back and checked on Symnatec and this one has only been around since April of this year!

But it is a cute Teddy Bear!;)

Why do people not get it? Other people, and especially virusscanner companies, DO NOT send out messages about virusses. In fact all the companies say is to get an update for their virusscanner.

And when a friend sends you this as a reply, just delete it and tell the friend he's helping this hoax get around he world. Just look it up on the internet on mcafee.com or norton.com

As a side note;
The guys who make these hoaxes are just waiting to get their own email back in their email box. I even got a message that was signed by "M. van Dalen" When you think about this AND you are Dutch (quite a combination huh?) it may refer to a popular arithmetical mnemonic that means "Mister van Dalen waits for answer" (In Dutch of course)

Well...
Thank you guys for your post and your comments...
I wasn't sure about the email... cause what the pervious person just said... it did sound funny... and I didn't think virus companies would email some stuff like that...

Thanks... :)
