eMail-Hoax "Life is beautiful.pps"

  • Andreas
AVERT HOAX Notice!!

McAfee AVERT Labs would like to inform you of a new email HOAX.

This email message is just a HOAX, currently we know of no other message that the user will receive about the HOAX as the initial email states. AVERT has not received any report of a user's hard drive being erased for opening the email.

We are advising users who receive the email to delete it and DO NOT pass it on as this is how an email HOAX propagates.

Below is the actual text from the message that may be received via email.


A new virus is circulating!!!!
This information came from Microsoft, and Norton.
Please, transmit it to anybody that you know that has access to the
Internet.
You may receive an e-mail about an offensive Powerpoint Presentation, entitled "Life is beautiful.pps".
If you get it, DO NOT OPEN THE FILE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE and delete it
immediately.
If you open that file a message will appear on your screen, "Now it is late, your life is no longer beautiful" after that you'll lose EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC and the person who sent it will have access to your name, e-mail address, and password.
It is a new virus started to run Saturday night.
We need TO DO ALL THAT is POSSIBLE TO DETAIN THAT VIRUS.
UOL already confirmed its danger and antivirus software cannot destroyed it. The Virus was created by a hacker that denominates himself as the owner of life and wants to destroy PCs domestic, and fight against Microsoft in justice! Because of this it comes disguised with a .PPS extension. He fights in justice by the patent of the Windows-XP. SEND THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOURS FRIENDS

Again, if you receive this email delete the it and DO NOT pass it on.

Na ja, der typische hoax halt.
Viele Großbuchstaben, Berufung auf Microsoft und andere (UOL soll wohl AOL sein?) und vor allem der Replikationsfaktor ("pass it to all your friends and everybody"). Also nicht weiterleiten, so'n Sch****

ciao
Andreas
