Is This For Real? Better Be Aware Though...

A close friend of mine (actually one of the three best friends) back in the university who is working in a consulting firm in SIngapore forwards this message. Just posting it here guys, in case you have heard of it or for if you have not, what do you think of it?

One opinion though, better be aware than be sorry later! Right???


From a person who works in IT ...........seems it could be for real.

Subject: VERY IMPORTANT - BIG VIRUS COMING !!! PLEASE READ & FORWARD !!!
http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/postcard.asp

Hi All, I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up forthis virus! I checked Snopes (URL above:), and it is for real!! Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP

PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!

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 a
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.

COPY THIS E-MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS. REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND
IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US

It is up to you guys, but as I have said, we lose nothing if we get warned or be knowledgeable of it.
