Hoax email goads users into

by Volker Weber

Hoax email goads users into deleting harmless files (via Hugh): A hoax email warning people that their PCs may contain a virus called sulfnbk.exe -- that will be triggered on 1 June -- seems to be propagating as a result of mass hysteria. The email, which was originally written in Portugese and was reported to be doing the rounds in Brazil last month, has now been translated and appears to be appearing throughout the UK, advising people to delete a harmless Microsoft Windows utility -- called sulfnbk.exe -- from their hard disks. Antivirus experts were quick to point out that the email does not contain a worm, and is being passed around simply by well-meaning people alarmed at its contents.
