Subject: Fw: VERY URGENT! virus warning Very Urgent!!!!!!!

WORST EVER VIRUS (CNN announced) PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST !! 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 titleA Virtual 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+del keys or the reset button are pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently destroying 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. Please pass this e-mail on to all your friends. Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all. An Internet Flower For you Also: Intel announced that a new and very destructive virus was discovered. If you receive an email called "An Internet Flower For you," Do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.DLL files) from your computer. Your computer will not be able to boot up!! HOPE THIS WILL ALERT ALL OF YOU

HOAX VI

Subject: Fw: Latest Virus spreading! BIGGGG TROUBLE !!!!

DO NOT OPEN AN E-MAIL WITH SUBJECT, "WTC Survivor". It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive. It will come to you in the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat a friend sent it to me, but called and warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he can't even start his computer! Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all. If you receive an email called"WTC Survivor" do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your compuer. This is a serious one.

HOAX VII

Name: SULFNBK.EXE

The Hoax mail indicated that Email with SULFNBK.EXE contains an incurable virus which destroys your computer. This email message is just a HOAX with or without SULFNBK.EXE attached to it. This file is clean and DOES NOT contain any malicious or damaging code. The text message of this HOAX states that some antivirus has detected infection in this file and this virus has payload to destroy your computer. It also indicates to look for this file in your computer and delete it. Actually SULFNBK.EXE is an valid Windows system file and deleting this file can cause unability to use some Windows features. Hence all are requested not to delete this file from Windows system folder. Although the file received via Email is clean there are possibility that during transmission from one system to other it can get infected by some valid virus.

HOAX VIII
Name: JDBGMGR.EXE

I am sorry for any inconvenience but I found the file and feel I should let you know.
Hennie Bekker

We have just received a message from one of our contacts that our address book had been infected by a virus (called jdbgmgr.exe) not detected by Norton or McAfee antivirus systems. The virus stays quiet for 14 days before damaging the system. It is sent automatically by the Messenger and by the address book, whether or not you sent e-mails to your contacts. We checked, found and deleted it. Now it's your turn!
Go to Start, Find or Search option In the files/folder option, write the name jdbgmgr.exe Be sure you search in your C: drive
Click "find now"
The virus has a little bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe DO NOT OPEN IT
Right click and delete it (it will then go to the Recycle Bin) well, or empty the bin.
IF YOU FIND THE VIRUS YOU MUST CONTACT ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK SO THEY CAN ERADICATE IT IN THEIR OWN ADDRESS BOOKS

HOAX IX
Bill Gates is sharing his wealth

Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is sharing his fortune. If you gnore this you will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it(if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period. For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00,for every person that you sent it to that forwardsit on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $241.00.Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a cheque. Regards.

Chinu!

I thought this was a scam myself, but two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on, Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, I received a cheque for US$24,800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can afford this Bill Gates is the man. It's all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as many people as possible. You are bound to get at least US$10,000.00.

HOAX X
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 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.

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
