HUGE VIRUS COMING to your computer

(From Pat R. Hi All, checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus. I checked Snopes (URL below), 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! 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.

Sue adds : I also checked this out and was advised to NEVER click on any link in an email to view a greeting card, reply to an invitation, or check out an ad. Always go directly to the website and click on links there.
