A new virus has just been discovered that has been
classified by Microsoft as the most destructive ever. This virus was
discovered yesterday afternoon by McAfee. This virus simply destroys
Sector Zero from the hard disk where vital information for its
functioning are stored.
This virus acts in the following manner: It sends itself automatically
to all contacts on your list with the title: "A Card for You".
As soon as the supposed virtual card is opened the computer freezes so
that the user has to reboot. When the ctrl+alt+del keys or the reset
button are pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently
destroying the hard disk. Yesterday in just a few hours this virus
caused panic in New York, according to news broadcast by CNN.
This alert was received by an employee of Microsoft itself. So don't
open any mails with subject: "A Virtual Card for You." As soon
as you get the mail, delete it, even if you know the sender.
Please forward this to everyone in your address book. I'm sure most
people, like myself, would rather receive this notice 25 times than not
Hi All, I checked with Norton
Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!

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 why you need to send this e-mail to all
your contacts It is better to receive this message 25 times than to
