Anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning, Direct from both Microsoft and Norton Please send it to everybody you know who has Access to the Internet. You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail titled “Here you have it” If you open the file, a message will appear on your screen saying: 'It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful....'
Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC, And the person who sent it to you will gain access to your Name, e-mail and password. This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon. AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the anti virus software's are not capable of destroying it.
The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself 'life owner'. http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/hereyouhave.asp

You know... I know it's a stretch but if people used common sense and didn't open any of these emails when they aren't expecting them from anyone... it would put these a-holes out of business! At my Hotmail account I get an email every once in a while saying it's a greeting card from a friend or a friend has sent you an e-card. I delete them immediately... sometimes there is even a followup saying you have a card waiting to be opened... that too gets deleted! People are just to gullible and think everything they get needs to opened and viewed.

Once again, this is why I recommend using an email notifier such as Mailwasher to check what email is on the email server at your ISP for yourselves BEFORE you download them to your computer.
Does it not make sense to get rid of any possible threat to your computer before it ever gets on your computer.
This is something I keep on trying to drum into my friends, but sure enough they sometimes don't listen and then I have to be the one who has to clean out their computer. Sheesh!

Yep, I use mailwasher too. I do get a lot of greeting cards here, and I love to get them, but, I do not open any that dont have the name of the person that has sent them in the subject line. Around Christmas time, I was getting one over and over again, that said, someone is sending you a card. Since I dont know anyone named someone, that, one always went right to the trash.
