Avoid That Virus Update Thread.

We all use our computers to be able to come to this wonderland that is HOP, so i think that it applies to us all.

I work as an IT Analyst and each week i am sent updates on the the latest computer virus's that are being sent around the world. This information should not be kept to myself.
You are all as vulnerable to them as i am.

So for that reason i'm setting up a thread so that we can all know what is doing the rounds.
Please if you hear of virus's going around POST THEM HERE!!!!!
Thankyou You Beautiful Peeps
LOL
Taking it easy

Hopefully the first of many.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE
> >
During the next several week be VERY VERY cautious about opening or
launching any e-mails that refer to the World Trade Center or 9 / 11
in any way.
> >
PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. FOR THOSE THAT DON'T
KNOW, "WTC" STANDS FOT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER REALLY DANGEROUS BECAUSE PEOPLE
WILL OPEN IT RIGHT AWAY.....

THINKING ITS A STORY RELATED TO 9 / 11
(........PLEASE BE CAREFUL........)

BIGGGGGG TROUBLE !!!!! DO NOT OPEN "WTC Survivor"

It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive (hard disk). 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 computer.
> >
PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE

Top Tips for spotting a hoax virus warning:

1) something like: microsoft and norton both confirmed this this morning...blah blah blah...have a look at their websites. ususally they have a bit for recent viruses (virii?)

3) Pleae forward this email to all your friends.....dont even bother...this is how virus hoaxes are spread..it just pisses everyone off.

**NEWS JUST IN**

READ THIS IMMEDIATELY AND PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

Someone is sending out a very cute screensaver of the Budweiser Frogs.

If you download it, you will lose everything.
Your hard drive will crash and someone from the Internet will get your screen name and possibly company passwords.

*DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES*

It just went into circulation yesterday.
Please distribute this Message.
This is a new, very malicious virus.

This information was announced yesterday morning from Microsoft.
Please share it with everyone that might access the Internet.

Once again,
Pass This Along To EVERYONE in your address book so that this may be stopped.
AOL has said that this is a very dangerous virus
and that there is NO remedy for it at this time.

LOL
