    You should be alert during the next days:

    Do not open any message with an attached file called 'Merry Christmas'
    regardless of who sent it, It is a virus that opens as an Open Log Fire
    and will burn the whole hard disc in your computer.


    This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address
    in his/her contact list, that is why you should send this e-mail to all
    your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to
    receive the virus and open it.

    If you receive a mail called 'Merry Christmas', though sent by a friend, do
    not open it and shut down your computer immediately. This is the worst
    virus announced, it has been classified by Microsoft as the most
    destructive virus ever.

    This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair
    yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector
    of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept

    thread moved to the jokes section where it belongs.

    "Open Log Fire"
    That had me on the floor laughing.

    lol.

    well, as we are a tech site, I don't want to necessarily mislead other members that may not be more technically aware. :)
