    totoo ba ito? sinend lang sa email ko..

    VERY IMPORTANT WARNING


    Please Be Extremely Careful especially if using internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning direct from both Microsoft and Norton.
    Please send it to everybody you know who has access to the Internet.
    You may receive an apparently harmless email with a P ower Point presentation "Life is beautiful."
    If you receive it DO NOT OPEN THE FILE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES , and delete it immediately. If you open this file, a message will appear on your screen saying: "It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful." Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC and the person who sent it to you will gain access to your name, e-mail and password.
    This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon. AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the antivirus software's are not capable of destroying it. The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself "life owner."
    PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS and ask them to PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY

    That’s why it comes disguised with extension pps. He fights in court for the Windows-XP patent.

    I can send you one. :D It was effective in nuking my target's HDD... but it wasn't a virus/trojan though. It was a hard disk utility that I "adjusted" for my purpose.

New Computer Virus???
