BAD Virus --CNN announced -- Snopes confirms as real.

Here is a link to the snopes page:


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 stored.

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

'You've received a Post Card from a Family member'.

As soon as the supposed virtual card is opened the computer freezes so that
the user has to reboot. When the ctrl+alt+ delkeys or t he reset button are
pres sed, 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 don't open any mails with subject:'A Post Card from ' 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 notice 25 times than not at All
