    EMAIL I GOT TODAY:

    Sent: Tuesday, February 01, 2005 4:40 PM

    Subject: Fw: VERY IMPORTANT


    VERY IMPORTANT WARNING Please Be Extremely Careful especially if using internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning from Microsoft and Norton. Please send it to everybody you know who accesses the Internet. You may receive an apparently harmless email with a Power Point presentation "Life is beautiful. pps". If you receive it DO NOT OPEN THE FILE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, and delete it immediately. if you open this file, a message will appear on your screen saying: "It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful", subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC and the person who sent it to you gain access to your name, e-mail and password. This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon. WE NEED TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO STOP THIS VIRUS. AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the antivirus Software's are not capable of destroying it. The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself "life owner". PLEASE MAKE A COPY OF THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS and PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY
    ----------

    Don't know if true or not, but passing it along anyway.

    When it comes to viruses, I'd rather have a warning that turns out to be unneeded, than no warning when it might be real. [​IMG]

    Dump Microsloth, and Viruses become like that flu that everyone at the office gets except you. You feel bad for them, but you don't feel their pain.
