NEW VIRUS WARNING
Hi All, I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for
virus! I checked Snopes (URL above:), and it is for real!! Get this
message sent around to your contacts ASAP. PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING
FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!
You should be alert
during the next few days. Do not open any message
an attachment entitled ‘POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK,’ regardless of who
to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which ‘burns’ the
hard disc C of your computer.
This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in
his/her contact list. This is the reason why you need to send this
all your contacts It is better to receive this message 25 times than to
receive the virus and open it.
If you receive a mail called’ POSTCARD,’ even though sent to you by a
friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately. This is the
worst virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by Microsoft as the
most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee
and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus.
This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where
vital information is kept. COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS.
REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US Snopes lists
all the names it could come in.
