Warnings! To All E-mail Users

A friend forwarded this e-mail message to me. We are all aware of the scams that has been passing around. But this one is another kind. It is a warning for all e-mail users. I believe this is worth passing around regardless of its credibility. Personally, it is better to be aware and it will be my responsible to make others aware, too.

Subject: HUGE VIRUS COMING!!!
PLEASE READ & FORWARD
.
Hi All, I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this virus! I checked Snopes and it is for real!! Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP. PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS! 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.

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: None

Please check this site for further info. It is not all that is said in the email that you received. Please read the info above. It's more hoax than anything.
