Re: new virus

A new virus has just ben discoered that has been
classifed by Microsoft as the most destructive ever.
This virus was discoverd yesterday afternoon by McAfee
and no vaccine has yet been developed. This virus
simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk, where
vital info 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 Virtual 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. So don't open any mails with subject: "A
Virtual Card for You." As soon as you get the mail ,
delete it. Also, Intel announced that a new and very
destructive virus was discovered recently. If you
receive an email called "An Internet Flower for You,"
do not open it. Delete it right away. This virus
removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from
your computer. Your computer will not be able to boot
