Subject: VIRUS WARNING!
If you receive an e-mail titled "WIN A HOLIDAY" DO NO OPEN THIS. It will

erase everything on your harddisk. Forward this letter out to as many
people
as you can. This is a new, very macilious virus and not many people know

about it. This information was announced yesterday morning from
Microsoft, please share it with everyone that might access the Internet.

Once again, pass this along to EVERYONE in your address book so that
this
may be stopped. Also, do not open or even look at any mail that says "
RETURNED OR UNABLE TO DELIVER" (FOLLOWING ONLY THIS MESSAGE) this virus
will
attach itself to your computer components and render them useless.
Immediately delete any mail items that say this. AOL has said that this
is a
very dangerous virus and that there is NO remedy for it at this time.
Please practice cautionary measures and forward this to all your on-line

friends.

Groetjes,

Johan Timman.

Is it even *possible* to make such a virus??
For it to succeed the mail viewer must in some way _execute_ the mail as a
executable file (program) that can do things with some file on your computer.
I don«t think there is any such mail viewer.
(But we never know what bright "features" Billy and his boys comes up with
next...)

I believe the only virus to fear is this mail which infects humans...

 I'm tired of seeing this hoax go by.

 This is fake.

 See the documentation at:

    ciac.llnl.gov/ciac/CIACChainLetters.html
       as I just posted here a few days ago.

 Yep... this chain letter is self is malicious...

 Horseshit.  Microsoft denys this.
 If the spokespeople from Microsoft claim one thing on their position,
 you'll have to come up more than your word on it.

 Once again, this is some gullable person falling for a chain letter.
 Do not forward it.

 And it will even send obscene postings to alt.sex.computer.terminals,
 molest your girlfriend, and cause your car to not start.

 AOL also denys this.   Just read the AOL information on Chain Letters.

 This clearly has nothing to do with PIC processors...

And your windowed PIC parts will suffer from data rot, and your green
marker will no longer make your CDs sound better, and your house current
will change to 220 (110 in England). Oh, and your phone will ring only
after you've answered it.

Sorry, couldn't help myself. At least I injected the PIC back into the
thread. ;-)
