WORST VIRUS EVER --- CNN ANNOUNCED beware of it





akshar
PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST!!

Quote:
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 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 itself.
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 sender !!!

I see 2 problems here.

1) Where is the source?

2) Deleting a hard drive sector??? What is that even possible? most hard drives have about 3000-4000 of them and just deleting one distorys the hard drive not the computer. If this was even possible it would be no more distrutive then the SadCase.trojan

O well I'm not a windows user so it isn't my problem now is it.

Sorry, but this virus doesn't exist and it's a total hoax.
