Subject: IT Notice: BIG VIRUS COMING!!! PLEASE READ AND FORWARD

We have reports that a nasty virus is masquerading as a postcard from Hallmark, and possibly other greeting card companies. See the notice below for more details.

Based on the report below, if you receive an email with a subject line containing POSTCARD and/or an attachment called “POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK”, DO NOT OPEN IT! Delete it immediately. This applies even if it comes from someone you know.

The virus spreads itself by sending emails to people in a victim’s address book. This is a technique used to get you to open the email and attachments. Because it comes from someone you trust you don’t think it will harm you. Once you open the attachment, your PC is infected and the damage is done.

>>> Subject: BIG VIRUS COMING!!! PLEASE READ AND FORWARD

>>> 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.

>>>

>>> 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.
