Warning:

I’ve just received an urgent email from a reliable source, advising me:

 
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 “Mail  Server Report”
 
 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 sent it to you will gain access to your Name, e-mail and password.
 
 This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday  afternoon. AOLhas 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.

So I’m posting it for others to see. You have been warned…!

  1. Whoops, I grabbed another one. However, the link you have above does state it to be a mixture.

    Changing to a Linux system (e.g., Ubuntu) would eliminate any problems with this. And switching from Windows is not that difficult, and is cheaper!
