typical US drama.or is it.

Subject: FW: Computer Virus: VERY URGENT PLEASE CIRCULATE





Caution ahead just in case you have not heard.






Subject: VERY URGENT PLEASE CIRCULATE



Better be safe than sorry!


VERY URGENT PLEASE CIRCULATE


In the coming days, DO NOT open any message regardless of who sent it to you with an attachment called:

BLACK MUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE. It is a virus that opens an Olympics torch that burns

the whole hard disk of your computer. Directions: You should send this message to all of your contacts.

It is better to receive this e-mail 2 dozen times than to receive the virus and open it.

If you receive a message called BLACK MUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE even if sent by a friend,

do not open and shut down your machine immediately.


It is the worst virus ever announced by CNN. it has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever.


This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon by McAfee. There is no repair yet for this kind of virus.


This virus destroys the Zero Sector of your hard disk, where vital information function is stored.


Verified by snopes.com< http://snopes.com/>

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

NOT VERIFIED By SNOPES

"The bottom line is that no matter what the title du jour might be, this warning is pure hoax: No such (incurable) virus like the one described in this warning exists, has been identified by McAfee, or was reported on by CNN. "

I'm 84 now. Getting old is wonderful, when you consider the alternative.

Any fool can criticize, condemn, & complain. And most do.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

Sorry Cabby, my emphasis should have been on "meant" thus avoiding getting into an argument about Snopes, which is totally irrelevant! if you get me drift

I do believe that the virus alert and snipes etc blinded most of you to the actual message, which was rather pointless really as he has only a little time left in office.
