another reason why I hate viruses
this came from my mum.

Subject: Maybe true maybe not


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 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 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 25 times than not at all.
