New Virus Found,
A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by Microsoft
(www.microsoft.com) and by McAfee(www.mcafee.com) 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 Virtual Card for You". As soon as the supposed
virtual card is opened, the computer freezes so that the user has to reboot.
When the ctrl+alt+del keys or the reset 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 (www.cnn.com). This alert was received by an
employee of Microsoft itself.
So don't open any mails with subject "A Virtual Card for You". As soon as
you get the mail, delete it. Please pass on this mail to all your friends.
Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this
25 times than not at all. Also: Intel announced that a new and very
destructive virus was discovered recently. If you receive an email called
"An Internet Flower For You", do not open it. Delete it right away!
Thisvirus removes all dynamic link libraries(.dll files) from your computer.
Your computer will not be able to boot up.
