Received from my Bangsa Malaysia buddette Faridah this morning. I thought that it would be a good idea to warn readers of this:
I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!
I checked snopes.com , and it is for real!! Get this E-mail message sent
Around to your contacts ASAP. PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!
You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message
With an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD,' regardless of who sent it to you.
It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard
Disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from someone who has
Your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is the reason why you
Need to send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is better to receive This message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.
If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a
Friend , do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately.
This is the worst v virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by
Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered
By McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus.
This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the
Vital information is kept.
Be careful, people and thanks Farida Ibrahim.
