    That's a hoax that's been around for quite awhile now (more than 5 years). Here's a site about the original version which claims the virus comes in the Bud-Frog screen saver. http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/weekly/aa071598.htm

    Urban legends is one of several good sites to check out hoaxes and rumors. Hoaxes and rumors can be as bad as the real thing.
