Have just received a warning of a possible virus . Been away on holiday, if you know about it please forgive me for reposting.

Please read: Big Virus coming

Hi All, 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.

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 yo u 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 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

COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS. REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US


Cheers Nipsen

Sending round email messages about possible viruses is the best way of spreading said virus.

I ALWAYS INGORE THESE TYPES OF EMAILS.

and immediately delete them and do not ever use chain e-mails.

it's been doing the rounds as long as i've had a pc. just delete it. zero sector??

Please enter 'POSTCARD virus' (without the quotes) into Google and see what it turns up.

Sorry if I caused a panic, that is why sent the text off my message & not the actual e-mail, better to be safe than sorry. I did 'Google' it by the way. I will now click this as resolved,
Cheers Nipsen
