    I tried to do a attachment and probably it is agood thing it did not work now knowing this was a hoax: I am computer illiterate!
    I recieved this from someone I have corresponded with many times I assumed it to be legitimate.
    "Fwd:Important---Legitimate Virus Warning
    Our CU secretary sent this to me. When I checked it out, the virus was on my c drive. Please follow the instructions and make sure this did not happen to you. Thanks,
    Sorry to have to tell youu this, but I found the virus described below on my hard drive after a friend sent me a message. Apparently I received it by being in her address boo. Since you all are in my address boo, you may have it too. Please follow the directions below to find out. You are in our address book and YOU MAY HAVE THIS VIRUS LYING IN YOUR HARD DRIVE. IT LIES DORMANT FOR 14 DAYS AND THEN KILLS YOUR HARD DRIVE. STOP EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW AND TAKE 10 SECONDS TO DELETE THE VIRUS FILE. FOLLOWING ARE THE DIRECTIONS TO DO THIS.
    It then goes on to tell you how to delete the files. The e-mail said the file was sulfnbk.exe. This was sent to me at 10:22 this morning.
    Again I am sorry but I panicked when I thought I helped to send a virus to a bunch of other peoples computers. Forrest

    There's a sucker born every minute.

    Ya know, the underlying moral is that we care for each other and reacted immediatly when one of us was threatened. That's a good thing. I think.

    I got two messages from Bruce today. One was forwarded from DaBeezer. One was Bruce's warning about the hoax virus. I deleted both. Best thing to do is disconnect from the Internet.
    Make sure the preview plane is turned off and delete any weird e-mail. Definitely don't open the attachments.

    Thanks Bruce for the warning.
