    PASS THIS ON!




    IF A PERSON CALLED SIMON ASHTON ( SIMON25@HOTMAIL.CO.UK) CONTACTS YOU THROUGH EMAIL DON'T OPEN THE MESSAGE. DELETE IT BECAUSE HE IS A HACKER!!

    TELL EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST BECAUSE IF SOMEBODY ON YOUR LIST ADDS HIM THEN YOU WILL GET HIM ON YOUR LIST. HE WILL FIGURE OUT YOUR ID COMPUTER ADDRESS, SO COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE EVEN IF YOU DON'T CARE FOR THEM AND FAST BECAUSE IF HE HACKS THEIR EMAIL HE HACKS YOUR MAIL TOO!!!!!.....

    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 'Mail Server Report'

    If you open either 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 o 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!

    That is often the purpose of such hoaxes, especially in a corporate environment where email servers can become slow and clogged as result of the ensuing multiple forwardings.
    If anyone receives something similar, I would advise running a simple Google search quoting some of the text.
    Alternatively, look it up one of the traditional anti-virus websites such as "SOPHOS"
    You can then decide whether to pass the information on or tell whoever sent you the scare what to do in future ;)
