    Default Bad virus warning

    read this on another forum

    HUGE VIRUS COMING ! PLEASE READ & FORWARD ! 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 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.

    COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS.
    REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US

    Hello, Just be warned that

    Description: Email hoax
    Circulating since: Feb. 2008 (this version)
    Status: False, although real e-card viruses resembling this do exist

    IMPORTANT NOTE

    Some versions of this hoax claim the information was "verified" on Snopes.com. This is NOT true. What has been verified on Snopes.com is a different e-card virus threat with a similar name.

    DO beware of phony "Hallmark" (or other) e-card notices -- they may carry a real virus.

    DON'T be confused by the false descriptions in the emails quoted below

    well now there hasnt been a virus that deletes the harddrive on any computer for many many years... (how are they gonna spread then... when no operating system)

    so just another HOAX. and the actually virus is the HOAX that everyone send around.

    then i better like the "polish" way.

    "Plase forward this email to all you know, when you done that delete your harddrive"
