Posted: I received this in my e-mail today. I do not know how or why or if this is true, but better safe than sorry.
During the next several weeks be VERY cautious about opening or launching any e-mail that refer to the World Trade Centre or 9/11 in any way, regardless of who sent it.
PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. For those that don't know, 'WTC' stands for the World Trade Centre. This is very dangerous because people will open it right away, thinking it's a story relating to 9-11. Do not open "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 computer.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE
Are we nearly there yet?

Symantec Security Response encourages you to ignore any messages regarding this hoax. It is harmless and is intended only to cause unwarranted concern.
The following email hoax began circulating in October 2001:
I just received a couple of emails regarding a "new" virus with the following message in the body of the email:
Date: Wed, 24 Oct 2001 08:50:15 -0500 Subject: Fwd: FW: Warning- New Virus: "WTC Survivor"
BIGGGG TROUBLE !!!! DO NOT OPEN "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 computer.
But you are right to be cautious. If ever you want to check anything out symantec software has a searchable virus and hoax database for you to look at. It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.
What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...
well, there is a very nasty virus i feel it it my duty to inform you good HOPpers about, it's called goodtimes(an old hoax):
Goodtimes will re-write your hard drive. Not only that, it will scramble any disks that are even close to your computer. It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness setting so all your ice cream goes melty. It will demagnetize the strips on all your credit cards, screw up the tracking on your television and use subspace field harmonics to scratch any CDs you try to play.
It will give your ex-girlfriend your new phone number. It will mix Kool-aid into your fishtank. It will drink all your beer and leave dirty socks on the coffee table when company comes over. It will put a dead kitten in the back pocket of your good suit pants and hide your car keys when you are late for work.
Goodtimes will make you fall in love with a penguin. It will give you nightmares about circus midgets. It will pour sugar in your gas tank and shave off both your eyebrows while dating your girlfriend behind your back and billing the dinner and hotel room to your Discover card.
It will seduce your grandmother. It does not matter if she is dead, such is the power of Goodtimes, it reaches out beyond the grave to sully those things we hold most dear.
It moves your car randomly around parking lots so you can't find it. It will kick your dog. It will leave libidinous messages on your boss's voice mail in your voice! It is insidious and subtle. It is dangerous and terrifying to behold. It is also a rather interesting shade of mauve.
Goodtimes will give you Dutch Elm disease. It will leave the toilet seat up. It will make a batch of Methanphetamine in your bathtub and then leave bacon cooking on the stove while it goes out to chase gradeschoolers with your new snowblower.
