A VIRUS ENTITLED POSTCARD





zestdan
Dear All, I just got this from a friend of mine and thought I should share. Take care.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY


You should be alert during the next several weeks. Do not open any message with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD,'regardless of who sent it to you.
It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc (C drive) 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' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a friend, do not open it.! This includes all cards, too. 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(some days ago), and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where your vital information is kept.

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

Pretty pathetic, I don't understand why people make these fake things. You can tell there is no such thing, because if it was real it would be all over the internet. Also, "This virus was dicovered by McAfee yesterday(some days ago)" how does that make any sense? If the "virus" was dicovered by McAfee some days ago then it wouldn't be yesterday.
