Destructive new virus

by Nikola Strahija on March 21st, 2002 A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive ever! This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon by McAfee and no vaccine has yet been developed.

This virus simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk, where
vital information for its functioning are stored. This virus acts in the
following manner:
It sends itself automatically to all contacts on your list
with the title "A Card for You." As soon as the supposed virtual card is
opened,the computer freezes so that the user has to reboot.

When the ctrl+alt+del keys or the reset button are pressed, the
virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently destroying the hard disk.
Yesterday in just a few hours this virus caused panic in New York,
according to news broadcast by CNN. An employee of Microsoft itself received
this alert. So don't open any mails with subject: "A Virtual Card for You."

Also: Intel announced that a new and very destructive virus was
discovered recently. If you receive an email called "An Internet Flower For You,"
do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic
link libraries (.DLL files) from your computer. Your computer will not be
able to boot up!!
