  • Virus warning!

    Dear Members

    I received this e mail from a good friend of mine today. I felt that i should warn members of this harmful virus.

    Kind Regards Steve



    Subject: VIRUS WARNING!

    Not a joke.



    Better to be safe than sorry!

    Dave' s brother is a very advanced programmer who does computer work for a living and has a high up status with Microsoft.

    He doesn't send these if they aren't real. If He says this is for real, it for sure is. Be aware.


    VIRUS COMING !


    Hi All,

    I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!

    I checked Snopes , 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 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 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 an email entitled "POSTCARD," even though it was 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

    I really don't get why people send these viruses, they cause havoc amongst ordinary everyday folk whilst the big business people have the protection of superior combative software.
    One day some spotty faced techno geek is gonna bring the world to its knees.

          Dear Members

          Received this update today, as below. Just thought i would keep you all updated.

          Regards Steve

          Hi Colin,

          Just to let you know, I checked this out on snopes for myself, and although it was a genuine threat in 2005, it's no longer a problem as long as you have up to date antivirus software!!

              Very funny, This was apparently a threat that was going to rear its ugly head again, and the info came from, quote,Dave' s brother is a very advanced programmer who does computer work for a living and has a high up status with Microsoft. un-quote. I am only trying to help members so don't shoot the messenger

              Regards Steve
