"It Takes Guts to Say Jesus" Virus Warning
This virus warning was passed on to Scoop and emanates from a IBM worker in the United States:
Pass This On To Anyone You Have An E-Mail Address For.
If you receive an email titled "It Takes Guts to Say Jesus" DO NOT OPEN IT.
It will erase everything on your hard drive. This information was announced yesterday morning from IBM; AOL states that this is a very dangerous virus, much worse than "Melissa," and that there is NO remedy for at this time.
Some very sick individual has succeeded in using the reformat function from NortonUtilities causing it to completely erase all documents on the hard drive. It has been designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. It destroys Macintosh and IBM compatible computers.
This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it.
Pass this warning along to EVERYONE in your address book and please share it with all your online friends ASAP so that this threat may be stopped.
Please practice cautionary measures and tell anyone that may have access to your computer.
Forward this warning to everyone that might access the Internet.
