WORST VIRUS EVER ---CNN ANNOUNCED






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 are 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+delkeys or the reset button are pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently destroyi! ng 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 employee 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 !!!

Hi All,

This is a virus alert sent to Nike Employees in US....


From: Communications, Internal
Sent: Tuesday, January 03, 2006 4:12 PM
To: Lst-Nike.Global
Subject: Critical Computer Virus Warning from Nike IT Security


To: All Nike Employees
From: Nike IT Security
Re: Critical Computer Virus Warning

A brand new virus that attacks PCs by using .wmf files (Windows Metafiles) has been discovered. This virus can impact PCs and PDAs, either at Nike or at home, running any version of Microsoft Windows.

Microsoft has announced that they will not have a patch for this virus until January 10th, but many Web sites are already infected. Visiting one can infect your system, which might need to be rebuilt from scratch, and can put the entire Nike network at risk for large-scale disruption.

For the time being, when working on any PC, we ask that you observe the following precautions:

1. Don't open any e-mail if you don't know who it is from. Download (save), open, or preview images from email or other sources with extreme caution, and only from known senders. Do not open emails with the subject line "xmas-2006 FUNNY.jpg" or "Happy New Year" (or other similar subject lines) from any senders.

2. Until further notice, please stop accessing your personal email account from Nike computers.

3. Please, no personal web surfing at work until further notice.


Nike Global Information Protection Services is closely watching and monitoring the situation, as it is very fluid right now, and we will change our strategy aggressively as the situation warrants. For more info from CERT (Computer Emergency Readiness Team), a division of the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, please visit their page at:

Take note of this!!!!


Presently people are having a big problem with a really intelligent worm virus in Yahoo groups.This virus usually reaches a mail box some way and then tracks the ids with the word "group" and send mails with subject lines usually of a forward which is already present in you mail box.

This virus is intellegent is becausee of two reasons - It sends mails with virus to groups by searching for the word "group" in its address book or inbox id's - It takes the subject line of any mail with "FW:" in it and sends it across to the groups and the sent mail is not even seen in the sent items box.

Suggestions [generic for any virus infected mail box]

1) Create 2 mail ids in address book one with name:

0000 (so that it wil be the 1st contact, and should not enter any email address for that) and another with ID: aaa@aaa.com this creates confusion to any normal virus in the first try of its sending the mail itself!


2) Create another id in address book with id:

aaaaabcdnothing@yahoogroups.com this will prevent the new virus from spreading to other groups coz when it tries this id it restarts trying and will end up in retrying for this id countless number of times thus preventing from spreading to some other mail box or groups.

This is a simple way of preventing viruses from spreading to other
mail boxes

Dangerous virus

There is a dangerous virus being passed electronically, orally and by hand. This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational- Killer (WORK).

If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.

If you should come into contact with WORK put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest bar. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolator-Neutralizer-Extractor (WINE) or Bothersome-Employer-Eliminator-Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

You should pass this warning to 5 friends. If you do not have 5 friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.
