#369 NO JOKE - Virus Warning

I also checked snopes about this one. It is real. Beware! Copy this and send it to your friends.

PLEASE FORWARD!!!!

Hi All,
I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!

I checked snopes.com , and it is for real!! http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/postcard.asp


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 message with an attachment entitled 'Invitation' OR ONE CALLED 'POSTCARD,'
regardless of who sent it to you. It is a virus which opens an Olympic Torch OR A POSTCARD 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 'Invitation' 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 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.

COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS. REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US.

I've often thought that if I were a virus writer I would find an old hoax virus name and call my deadly new one the same, then folks would just ignore the warnings, at least until it had spread.... lucky I'm not a virus writer!!!

Thanks for thumbs up. I had an email last week that was supposed to have been sent by my broadband server wanting me to supply my password or else be cut off the net within 48 hours. Naturally I knew this was not correct because if my server does not already have my password welll!. I phoned my server re this and many other customers had received the same email.
Cheers Margaret

I think I already received and deleted this yesterday. Anything with attachments from strangers are instantly zapped anyway ;)
