Anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning, Direct from both Microsoft and Norton. Please send it to everybody you know who has access to the Internet. You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail titled 'Mail Server Report' If you open either file, a message will appear on your screen saying: 'It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful.' Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC, And the person who sent it to you will gain access to your name, email and password. This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon. AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the anti virus software's are not capable of destroying it. The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself 'life owner'. THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES Please read http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/mailserver.asp

Oh my gosh. that is unreal. I use hotmail and AOL sometimes. I will have to watch out and not open those. I usually don't open something if i do not know who it is from anyway but thank you for letting me know this. I appreciate it.

It is great that you put th ewarning out sweetheart and I really do appreciate it but read to the bottom of the warning on snopes - it actually states it is a hoax warning! Never mind though it is always better to be safe than sorry! xx

EEEkkkkkkk. My Norton isn't working properly and I am having to rely on my old simple firewall on my computer to keep me going. And EVERYTHING is on my computer (photos etc.) that I can't get copied yet - that's a problem when you are living in the back of beyond in the Dom Rep! Thanks for the notice. I will endeavour not to open anything like this even if it is sent by someone I know.

yeah know it kills me,the people doing this have to be very smart when it comes to computers. they could use this info they know to help instead of hurt and make money doing it. i wish i could do half of what these people most know.
