Serious new Virus

Subj: Confirmed by SNOPES: Important - read immediately



VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THIS - These e-mails are floating around currently in HP


Anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning, Direct from both Microsoft and Norton Please send it to everybody you know who has Access to the Internet. You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail titled "Here you have it" If you open either file, a message will appear on your screen saying: 'It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful....'

Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC, And the person who originated it will gain access to your Name, e-mail and password. This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon.

AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the anti virus softwares are not capable of destroying it.

The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself 'life owner'.

PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, And ask them to PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!

THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES.

I got this warning via a very reliable family member. So I trust it, unless he is duped. Wayne

Well, we just have to avoid to do the same things as always, do not open files that you did not ask and so on.

Wayne... It's a HOAX... these emails go out from time to time about a "New Deadly Virus"

And you help contribute to the Spam Problem by "SEND(ing) A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, And ask them to PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!"

So you do the work of a spam virus for them...

Gosh, Sorry, I meant no harm. I only wanted to help out

You are a fantastic guy Wayne... it is an honor and pleasure to be acquainted with you.

And I hope you took no offense at my reply (I see now that is possible) as I was merely describing how that nutty email works (the CAPS part was essentially a "cut & paste" from your above message. My sincere apologies for sounding like it was some sort of accusation. I know you were sincere in your warning. I should have written:

"by sending / forwarding this, we (meaning me too) actually become the "virus engine" by searching our contacts and forwarding it to others."

Somewhat ingenious (certainly devious) as the viral code that would normally do this task would probably be squashed by our anti-virus software.

Again… apologies as I have nothing but respect for you.

Respectfully,
Rob Osborne

No problem Wayne :) .. we all appreciate the intention. Not everyone knows that this kind of email is ALWAYS (100.00 %) spam, whoever send it. Now a few people more know...

Thank you, Wayne!
By the way, I'd like to say that the sender of the message could also be one of your friends, or so on...
There are also some viruses that enter in the PC and send them to other computers, so every message with an attachment not requested should be deleted immediately!

Hi all, the database of my antivirus, is updated sometimes twice per week, so, everyday there are new viruses, trojans and derivatives, and many of them will propagate through emails, so, Thibault's advise standas, "do not open files that you did not ask and so on". If you are too curious, run a cdlive linux and open it from there.

I never open emails that do not have a specific subject in that column.
