    Important: Take a look ASAP

    I did just check on Urban Legends Reference Pages check for yourself but it said confirmed virus

    www.snopes.com/computer/virus/postcard.asp

    PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST!!A new virus has just been
    discovered that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive
    ever. This virus was discovered yesterday afternoon by McAfee. This virus simply destroys Sector Zero from the hard disk, where vital information for its functioning are stored. This virus acts in the following manner:
    It sends itself automatically to all contacts on your list with the title:


    "You've received a Post Card from a Family member". As soon
    as the supposed virtual card is opened the computer freezes so that the user has to reboot. When the ctrl+alt+ del keys or the reset button are
    pressed, the virus destroys Sector Zero, thus permanently destroying the hard disk. Yesterday in just a few hours this virus caused panic in New
    York, accordin g to news broadcast by CNN.
    This alert was received
    by an employee of Microsoft itself.
    So don't open any mails with subject: "A Post Card from ..."



    As soon as you
    get the mail,
    delete
    it !! Even if you
    know the sender!!!

    Please
    pass this mail to all of your friends.
    I hope this gets to people before something happens, this could cause people to lose hundreds of dollars.

    Greetz,
    E.

    yeah, those emails are complete bastards, also watch out for fake youtube links, as well as IRS emails that you probably shoulden't be getting.
