      Subject:: A Critical New Virus

      A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by
      Microsoft (www.microsoft.com <http://www.microsoft.com> )
      and by McAfee (www.mcafee.com <http://www.mcafee.com> )
      as the most destructive ever!
      This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon by McAfee
      and no vaccine has yet been developed. 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 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.
      Yesterday in just a few hours this virus caused panic in New York,
      according to news broadcast by CNN (www.cnn.com)
      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.
      Please pass on this mail to all your friends. Forward this to
      everyone in
      your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at
      all.
      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 up!!

      SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST!!
