Subject: I M P O R T A N T W A R N I NG ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! PLEASE READ!!!!!










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 t o the Internet.

You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail with a Power Point presentation ' Life is Beautiful'

If you receive it DO NOT OPEN THE FILE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, and delete it immediately.

If you open this 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'.

PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, And ask them to PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!

THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES

Mike, you need to check your link. The life is beautiful one is a hoax. The one in your link is real, but is not the one you describe.

Description:
This hoax warns of a new virus that can be transmitted from the infected computer to the user. It uses prominent names in the IT industry to appear convincing. Trend Micro advises that users delete this email, which is a hoax

Original Message:
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", and 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 which started to run on Saturday night. Antivirus software cannot destroy the virus. The Virus was created by a hacker that nominates himself as the owner of life and wants to destroy PCs domestic, and fight against Microsoft injustice! Because of this it comes disguised with a .PPS extension. He fights in justice by the patent of the Windows-XP.
