Anyone know anything about this?:-

Anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, Gmail, 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 Intern et.

You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail with a Power 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 anti virus software's are not capable of destroying it.

The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself "li fe owner".

PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS,
And ask them to
PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!

THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES

This hoax started circulating in early 2002 and it has been passed around ever since. In spite of a great deal of online exposure, the hoax tends to resurge from time to time and its rate of circulation increases dramatically for a few months. As hoax emails go, this is one of the most "successful". Perhaps because of the apparent destructiveness of the "virus" and the urgent tone of the warning, people are apt to forward the message without much forethought. Like many other hoaxes, it capitalizes on the recipient's desire to help other Internet users by warning them of a perceived threat.

The only things that seem to come re appear with similar frequency are jokes on the smiles for a day thread and bell bottom jeans!


It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
