F-Secure Hoax Warnings Pages


NAME: Jesus
ALIAS: It Takes Guts to Say Jesus

There is no virus by this name. However, there is a widespread hoax message of an e-mail virus by this name. Such virus does not exist. Do not forward the hoax warning. Here's a copy of the original warning:


Virus Warning!!!!!


If you receive an email titled "It Takes Guts to Say 'Jesus'" DO
NOT open it. It will erase everything on your hard drive.
Forward this letter out to as many people as you can. This is a
new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it.
This information was announced yesterday morning from IBM;
please share it with everyone that might access the internet.
Once again, pass this along to EVERYONE in your address book so
that this may be stopped.

Recently there appeared a new twist of this hoax:


WARNING


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 it at this time.


Some very sick individual has succeeded in using the re-format
function from Norton Utilities 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 .

Again, do not forward these hoaxes.
