Virus Alert (Hallmark Greetings) EMAIL ALERT

Hi All, I got this email earlier today, I checked Snopes

It's a real Virus Threat !

Get this message sent to your contacts ASAP


You should be alert during the next few days.

Do not open any message
with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK,' 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 called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately. This is the worst virus announced by CNN.

It has been classified by
Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, 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.
