Abstract

Recently it was shown that folded strings are spontaneously created behind the horizon of the SL(2,R) k /U(1) black hole. Here we show that these folded strings violate the averaged null energy condition macroscopically. We discuss possible consequences of this observation on black hole physics in general, and on the information puzzle in particular.
