    Hey guys,

    Don't want to be an alarmist but this was sent to me and confirmed by Snopes.com so I'm passing it on for what it's worth:



    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 t o 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, e-mail 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'.

    PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, And ask them to
    PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!

    THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES (see link below)

        No problem. Normally I don't pass this kind of stuff on but it seems legit and if I can prevent one person from crashing their computer it's worth it :)

          Thanks for the heads up Jamy. Better safe than sorry when it comes to stuff like that.
