E-RFD: "Mail Server Report" Virus

(Sent to OrMag by ken-carol@netzero.net)

To anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail,  AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning, direct from both Microsoft and Norton.

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 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.   AOLhas already confirmed the severity, and the anti virus softwares are not capable of destroying it. The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself  'life owner'.

THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES.
 
 

Note: E-RFDs are messages that circulate around the internet.  Some are factual and some are mythical.  We make no distinction between the types, here, but rather offer them pretty much as they come in -- as examples of comment and rumor from a global mind.
