Please check virus alerts against the list of known viruses at:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/vinfodb.html

before passing along information. This particular virus is a hoax:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/sulfnbk.exe.warning.
html

and the file that you're removing belongs on your system.

Any email that recommends sending the info to everyone in your address book
should be suspect. The goal of these types of hoaxes is to flood servers
with emails, as this one does.
