Virus Warning

HUGE VIRUS COMING---I also checked Snope.com and they say it is real.

Earl

 

I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are

  gearing up for this virus. I checked Snopes (URL

above:), and it is for real.

 

  Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts

ASAP.

 

  You should be alert during the next few days. Do not  open any message

with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK,' 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 let all your contacts know about this. 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! Sh ut down your computer immediately.

 

This is the worst 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.

Thanks Jim E.

I think this one is a year old but we still need to watch out for these viruses..
