Virus HOAX: SULFNBK.EXE

Hey did you get an email that said

Possible Virus – Check Your C: Drive“?

  • Did you follow the instructions?
  • Did you search for sulfnbk.exe?
  • Did you delete this file?

Congratulations. You’re an idiot.

Sulfnbk.exe was put in Windows98 to restore long filenames. It’s a hoax.
And you just deleted this file because one of your AOL “Forwarding friends” told you to.

For more information on this hoax, check out Antivirus.About.Com.

About ten of these emails have hit my inbox… and counting.
