I received this e-mail today and thought I’d share:
BIG VIRUS COMING !!! PLEASE READ & FORWARD !!!
Hi All, I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for
this virus! This is the worst virus announced by CNN.
I checked Snopes (URL above:), and it is for real!! Get this E-mail
message sent around to your contacts ASAP PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING
AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!
You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any me ssage
with an attachment entitled ‘POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK,’ regardless of who
sent it to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCA RD IMAGE , which
‘burns’ the whole 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 e-mail to 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.
It has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus
ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no
repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero
Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept.
