Warning about deadly computer virus (4 May 2010)

posted 8 May 2010, 05:02 by Dawn Grove
This alert was received from a Harlaston Villager....

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 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.
