  • New computer virus warning

    If you haven't seen this...(and verified at snopes.com)

    http://www.snopes. com/computer/ virus/postcard. asp

    You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message
    with an attachme nt 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 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 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.

    Snopes lists all the names it could come in.

        Eh. It happens. Better to post it and have it be old than not post it and have someone not know about it at all.
