New strain of virus hits computer e-mail

Recommended Posts

I just received this report. I have not had a chance to validate:

 

You should be alert during the next days:

 

New strain of virus hits computer e-mail - May 19, 2000 CNN.com - Technology - - May 19, 2000

 

Do not open any message with an attached filed called "Invitation" regardless of who sent it

 

It is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch 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, that is why you should 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", though sent by a friend,do not open it and 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.

 

SEND THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW, COPY THIS E-MAIL AND SEND IT TO

 

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