Default **Serious post on upcoming virus**

I got this e-mail and seems serious....

I have checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for

this virus!



Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP.



You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any

message with

an attachment entitled "P OSTCARD," 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 call! ed" POSTCARD," even though sent to you

by a

friend, do not open it! This includes all cards, too. Shut down

your

computer immediately.



It has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus

ever.



This virus was discovered by McAfee on 3/16/2008, 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.

THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US.

Found this video online too
