    This was in my e-mail to-day,
    PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE YOU HAVE AN E-MAIL ADDRESS FOR.
    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 reformat 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 maybe stopped.
    Please practice cautionary measures and tell anyone that may have access to your computer. Forward this warning to everyone that you know that might access the Internet.

    That is just a hoax, has been around since 1998. See Here.


    Just a while ago tonight I got this REAL virus email... Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, ha, ha, ha @sexyfun.net :(
    Norton AV caught it before my mail server downloaded so I deleted it.
    :D

    One must be careful.

    hahaha@sexyfun.net has been around awhile also. Someone actually started a site hahaha@sexyfun.net to try and help people that didn't know any better and opened the email. Check it out, if you're bored. A lot of info there.
