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: 'You've received a Post Card from a Family member'. 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.



Don't open any mails with subject: 'A Post Card from ....' 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.

I got that web address from an old friend. He did the work, glass....

Damn thing is nasty even if it isn't new.

I'm careful about opening emails I don't know for certain what they may be, because you can't really ever know.
