Hoax virus.

Every few months a  e-mail is sent out describing the most dangerous virus yet along with instructions on what action to take.
Todays e-mail was about a "Postcard from Hallmark" Think I have heard this one before somewhere, no doubt it will not be the last.

Re: Hoax virus.

Such hoax emails are designed to try to clog up the email systems on the www. It never ceases to amaze me that people can fall for the "It's so new that Norton etc & Microsoft don't even know about it." statements.  Sad Sad Sad
