WORST VIRUS EVER --- CNN ANNOUNCED
PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST!!

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 !!!


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

There are always a few of these around, the gag is that a real virus empties your address book and mail sitself to everyone you know, whereas this one makes you do it for them... Watch out also for ones that claim if you forward things you end up in a prize draw, Microsoft giving money to charity, etc.
