Subject: [CR]New computer virus discovered by Microsoft

This may be off topic for the CR, but I received the letter below about a new virus from a close relative back East and thought I'd pass it along. Below my salutation is the letter.

Best regards, Peter Naiman Shorewood, WI .................................................... WORST VIRUS EVER ANNOUNCED BY CNN

PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST !!

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, and no vaccine has yet been developed. This virus simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk, where vital information for its functioning is 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 e mployee 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 pass this mail to all of your friends—to everyone in your address book.

I'm sure most people, like myself, would rather receive this notice 25 times than not at all.
