    Exclamation Urgent!!!! Please Read This...

    Hi All, I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus!
    I checked Snopes .com and it is for real!!


    You should 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. 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.

    There are hundreds if not thousands of these stupid things - they never come to anything.

    If you open something that isn't a real email from a friend you're always going to get caught out. I know sometimes it's difficult to tell, but usually it's obvious.

    Common sense will always save those who use it.
