Quote:
IF A PERSON CALLED SIMON ASHTON
(SIMON25@HOTMAIL.CO.UK) CONTACTS YOU THOURGH EMAIL DON'T OPEN THE

MESSAGE. DELETE IT BECAUSE HE IS A HACKER!!

TELL EVRYONE ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST BECAUSE IF SOME ON YOUR LIST ADDS HIM THEN

YOU'LL GET HIM ON YOUR LIST. HE WILL FIGURE OUT YOUR ID COMPUTER ADDERESS, SO

COPY AND PASTE TO EVERYONE EVEN IF YOU DON'T CARE FOR THEM AND FAST BECAUSE

IF HE HACKS TO THEIR EMAIL HE'LL HACK YOUR MAIL TOO!!!...

Anyone using the internet mail like Yahoo, Hot mail, 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 e-mail titled ‘Mail

Server Report'

If you open either file, a message will appear on your screen saying 'it's 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, password.

This is a new virus which started to circulated 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 TO ALL NOW!!!!!!!!

Really, any message that tells you to "email everyone you know" is blatant lies. Sending mass emails (even in good faith) is more or less spam; if you really needed to alert everyone you know, all you have to do is post it once on your Twitter or FB, and everyone will see it automatically.

... Not that they should believe a word of it anyway, but that's another story.
