If you receive an email entitled “Virus Warning”
DO NOT OPEN IT. You may fall for the hoax and be
tricked into sending it on to everyone in your
address book, making you look really gullible.
This info was provided yesterday by some geezer
with nothing better to do. This is a new, malicious
hoax, which as yet has no cure.
Pass this info on to everyone you have an email
address for, just so you can piss them off as much
as you were pissed off when you received it.
If you fail to observe this warning, you could end
up like this typical example:
At a school in the depths of southern england, a
certain IT manager received a email virus warning,
and put up warning notices around the school. A
small team of sixth-formers set about reversing the
damage done by this hoax, by putting up counter
warnings and sending repeated anonymous emails to
the IT manager. Eventually, the IT manager realised
the error of his ways, but by then, he had already
passed the hoax to all the staff who had in turn
fallen for the hoax.
This account may sound far-fetched like most you see
on chain-letters, but this did really happen.
The moral of this story: if you receive a virus warning,
99 times out of 100, it will be a hoax, and there are
websites for you to check, http://www.vmyths.com
being an example. (If you know of any better, please add
Please, let us put a stop to this plague which is frankly
pissing me off no end.
