ANOTHER BAD VIRUS !!!
« on: April 15, 2002, 02:09:23 pm »
Subject: WORST VIRUS EVER...CNN ANNOUNCED

PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST !!

A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by Microsoft as
the most destructive ever! This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon by
McAfee and no vaccine has yet been developed. This virus simply destroys
Sector Zero from the hard disk, where vital information for its functioning
are stored.

This virus acts in the following manner: It sends itself automatically to all
contacts on your list with the title "A Card for You" or +IBw-A Virtual Card for
You+IB0.

As soon as the supposed virtual card is opened, the computer freezes so
that the user has to reboot. When the ctrl+ACs-alt+ACs-del keys or the re=
set button are pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently destroying =
the hard disk. Yesterday in just a few hours this virus caused panic in New York,
according to news broadcast by CNN. This alert was received by an employee
of Microsoft itself. So DO NOT open any mails with subject: "A Virtual Card
for You." As soon as you get the mail, delete it!! Even if you know the
sender!!!

Please pass this mail to all of your friends.

Forward this to everyone in your address book. I'm sure most people, like
myself, would rather receive this 25 times than not at all.
