HALLMARK VIRUS ALERT – THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE VIRUS EVER ON IT’S WAY?

November 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Technology

My mom is catching on.

Just In From Mom….

THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE VIRUS EVER ON IT’S WAY?

A friend of my family is a very programmer who does computer work for a living and has a high up status with Microsoft. He doesn’t send these if they aren’t real. If he says this is for real, it for sure is. Be aware.

My family friend checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus and if click on this link for Snopes, you’ll see it’s for real. PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS! Whatever you do – please don’t take offense if I delete you from my contacts. You see it? Delete it.

This is why I tell my mom over and over again – don’t open stuff.

Be alert during the next few days. 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. This is the reason why you need to 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’ 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. That in itself doesn’t mean much because 2012 is still two years away and we’re 10 years removed from Y2K. Nevertheless supposedly this 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.

REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US! Here’s a clip about wiggly worms!
