New Virus!BEWARE!

Thu Feb 21, 2002 1:45 am

I received this e-mail today. I think this is serious...

PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE YOU HAVE AN E-MAIL ADDRESS FOR.
If you receive an email titled: "It Takes Guts to Say Jesus"
DO NOT OPEN IT. It will erase everything on your hard drive.
This information was announced yesterday morning from
IBM; AOL states that this is a very dangerous virus, much worse than
"Melissa," and that there is NO Remedy for it at this time. Some very sick
individual has succeeded in using the reformat function from Norton
Utilities
causing it to completely erase all documents on the hard drive. It has been
designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. It
destroys Macintosh and IBM compatible computers.

This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it. Pass
this warning along to EVERYONE in your address book and please share it with
all your online friends ASAP so that this threat maybe stopped. Please
practice cautionary measures and tell anyone that may have access to your
computer. Forward this warning to everyone that you know that might access
the Internet.

Holy shi* you people are gullible...  Insane

This is not a virus; it is a hoax, and it should be ignored. The following are three known varients of this hoax:
