Worst Virus Ever?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by W. K. Mahler, Mahlers.com, Apr 17, 2007.

  1. *Hi,

    I read this moments ago at "MySpace" from "Mike4Wheels" as a "bulletin".
    Although it comes from MySpace and could appear to only effect "MySpace"
    accounts, there is several references to "email" and "opening attachments".
    Of my knowledge, there is no opening attachments within MySpace.com

    Subject WARNING ~~~ virus on myspace !!!!!
    Body: Get this sent around to your contacts ASAP...we don't need this
    spreading around.

    PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS:

    You should be alert during the next days:

    Do not open any message with an attached filed called "Invitation"
    regardless of who sent it, It is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch
    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, that is why you should send this e-mail to
    all your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than
    to receive the virus and open it.

    If you receive a mail called "invitation", though sent by a friend, do
    not open it and shut down your computer immediately. This is the worst
    virus announced by CNN, it has been classified by Microsoft as the
    mostdestructive 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

    SEND THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW ,

    COPY THIS E-MAIL AND SEND! IT TO YOUR FRIENDS

    AND REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~AND~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If a certain Megan Greco wants to add you to their friend list don't accept
    it. It's a virus. Tell everyone on your list because if somebody on you list
    adds them you will get it too. It is a hard drive killer and a very horrible
    virus. Please pass this on to everyone on your list. We need to find out who
    is using this account. Pass this on please just like I have done

  4. People should always be careful of attachments, any attachments and scan
    them first for viruses before opening. That said, we also need to be
    careful about spreading rumors without first checking them out. You might
    want to have a look at the following:

  5. Messages that try to coerce you into sending it out multiple times are
    designed to clog up the internet with thousands of useless e-mails.. DO NOT
    send stuff like this to every or indeed ANY contact on your e-mail
    list/address book.. just quietly delete it..

    This is exactly what you should NOT do. Forwarding this post on to your
    friends could be spreading a virus to their Inboxes. Be cautious. Don't be
    foolish.
