    <font color=blue> CHECK THIS OUT !

    Worst Virus ever.....CNN announced.
    &gt; &gt;PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST!!
    &gt; &gt;
    &gt; &gt;A new virus has just been discovered that has been classified by
    &gt; &gt;Microsoft
    &gt; &gt;as the most destructive ever! This virus was discovered yesterday
    &gt; &gt;afternoon
    &gt; &gt;by McAfee and no vaccine has yet been developed. This virus simply
    &gt; &gt;destroys
    &gt; &gt;Sector Zero from the hard disk, where vital information for its
    &gt; &gt;functioning are stored.
    &gt; &gt;This virus acts in the following manner: It sends itself automatically
    &gt; &gt;to all contacts
    &gt; &gt;on your list with the title "A Card for You." As soon as the supposed
    &gt; &gt;virtual card
    &gt; &gt;is opened, the computer freezes so that the user has to reboot. When
    &gt; &gt;the keys or
    &gt; &gt;the reset button are pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus
    &gt; &gt;permanently
    &gt; &gt;destroying the hard disk. Yesterday in just a few hours this virus
    &gt; &gt;caused panic in
    &gt; &gt;New York, according to news broadcast by CNN. This alert was received
    &gt; &gt;by an
    &gt; &gt;employee of Microsoft itself. So don't open any mails with subject: "A
    &gt; &gt;Virtual Card for You."
    &gt; &gt;As soon as you get the mail, delete it even if you know the sender.
    &gt; &gt;Please pass this mail to all of your friends. Forward this to everyone
    &gt; &gt;in your address book.
    &gt; &gt;I'm sure most people, like myself, would rather receive this 25 times
    &gt; &gt;than not at all.
    &gt; &gt; Also: Intel announced that a new and very destructive virus was
    &gt; &gt;discovered recently.
    &gt; &gt;If you receive an email called" An Internet Flower For You", do not
    &gt; &gt;open it. Delete it right away!
    &gt; &gt;This Virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.DLL files) from your
    &gt; &gt;computer. Your computer will not be able to boot up

    <font color=blue> Other's have posted that it's a hoax, but I'd rather get it out there as soon as possible just in case.
