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 . This virus simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk, where vital information for its functioning are stor ed.

This virus acts in the following manner:
It sends itself automatically to all contacts on your list with the title:

"A 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.

This alert was received by an employee of Microsoft itse lf.

So don't open any mails with subject: "A Virtual Card for You." As soon as you get the mail, delete it !! Even if

you know the se nder !!!

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 notice 25 times than not at All
