    PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG YOUR 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 drive of your computer.

    This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address on his/her contact list. That 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 if it is 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

    Lets be a little bit investigative/inquistive . Dont just take serious every information coming on your way


    • Is this so called HALLMARKvirus real Threat?
    • Is it true Macfee , Norton. Microsoft have no updates for its removal.?
    • Is it true it Macfee discovered the virus yesterday 22.Nov.2010?
    Let us not just create unncessary panic

    • Visit Macfee.com u will find the so called virus was discovered in 2009. and its not destructive as it is claimed . Macfee call it a worm not a virus Search Results: Hallmark virus
    • Google the word "HALLMARK virus" u will find that its a hoax eg visit Postcard From Hallmark Virus - Avoid it
    • Na zaidi kwa kuangalia wording tu utagundua kuwa kuna chumvi imeogezewa . 'burns' the whole hard disc C drive of your computer. How can a virus burn a hard disk ? Je huyu virus ana nguvu za umeme au kusababisha shortcircuit

    HOOOOAAAAAX!
    For your benefit and for others in this forum who didn't know, I'm giving you the sites below so that you can always check the authenticity of any chain-email, most of which are hoaxes. Most of them demand/request the email recipient to forward the purported information to others. Take your time go through their databases of hoaxes, you can also use the hoaxes you'll find their to send to other people for fun (it is not fun to me).
