the details of this HOAX message are not based on actual events.
We are advising users who receive the email to delete the message and DO

Below is the actual text from the message that may be received via email.
There are numerous variations on these messages. </U>
<U>(English version)</U><TEXTAREA name=textfield2 rows=20 cols=50>A VIRUS
could be in your computer files now, dormant but will become active on
June 1. Try not to USE your Computer on June 1st. FOLLOW DIRECTIONS BELOW
TO CHECK IF YOU HAVE IT AND TO REMOVE IT NOW. No Virus software can detect
it. It will become active on June 1, 2001. It might be too late by then.
It wipes out all files and folders on the hard drive. This virus travels
thru E-mail and migrates to the 'C:\windows\command' folder. To find it
and get rid of it off of your computer, do the following.
Go to the "START" button.
Go to "FIND" or "SEARCH"
Go to "FILES &amp; FOLDERS"
Make sure the find box is searching the "C:" drive.
Type in: SULFNBK.EXE
Begin search.

If it finds it, highlight it. Do not double click or file will
automatically open.
Go to 'File' and delete it.
Close the find Dialog box
Open the Recycle Bin
Find the file and delete it from the Recycle bin
You should be safe.

The bad part is: You need to contact everyone you have sent ANY E-mail to
in the past few months. Many major companies have found this virus on
their computers. Please help your colleagues and friends !

DO NOT RELY ON YOUR ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE. McAFEE and NORTON CANNOT DETECT
IT BECAUSE IT DOES NOT BECOME A VIRUS UNTIL JUNE 1ST.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT OPEN THE FILE!!!

name=textfield rows=15 cols=50>FW: GEVAARLIJK VIRUS.

Zoek het bestand sulfnbk.exe op je harde schijf. Indien dit erop staat
onmiddelijk verwijderen. Dit is een kwaadaardig virus bedacht door een
ex-medewerker van Casema.

Het virus treedt in werking op 25 mei 2001.
Het is verstuurd als onzichtbaar bestand naar de adres lijsten van de
Casema en Wanadoo abonnees waardoor het weer automatisch doorgestuurd
werd.
Het wordt door geen enkele virusscanner herkend. Treuzel niet, zoeken en
verwijderen. Ook uit je prullebak.

</TEXTAREA>
<U>(French version)</U><TEXTAREA name=textfield rows=10 cols=50>ATTENTION
VIRUS!
Nous privenons toutes les personnes ` qui nous avons certainement envoyi
des
E-mail les mois pricidents, ceci suite ` un message d'un interlocuteur
habituel. Le virus "fnbk" itait effectivement dans notre disque dur mais
n'a
pas iti actif ` ce jour sur notre ordinateur.  Ce virus est programmi pour
devenir actif. A cause du dilai d'activation, il n'est pas ditecti par les
logiciels de ditection des virus comme McAfee ou Norton.
Personne ne sait depuis quand le virus est dans le systhme. Il est
possible
que cela fasse plusieurs mois.
Quand ce virus deviendra actif, il supprimera tous les dossiers et
fichiers
de votre (ou vos) disques durs. Le virus se propage par E-mail et infiltre
le dossier 'C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND'.  Pour le trouver et le supprimer de votre
ordinateur, suivez les instructions suivantes :
	Cliquez sur "Dimarrer"
	Choisissez "Rechercher"
	Choisissez "Fichiers ou dossiers"
	Allez ` "Rechercher dans " et silectionner "disques durs locaux
(C:)" Dans la ligne "Nom du fichier ou dossier recherchi", tapez :
SULFNBK.EXE Si le fichier est trouvi, silectionnez le mais NE L'OUVREZ PAS
!!!
(pour le silectionner sans l'ouvrir, faites "idition" puis "silectionner
tout",
		car en principe il n'y a qu'un seul fichier).
		Dans le menu fichier, cliquez sur "Supprimer".
		Fermer la fenjtre "risultat de la recherche".
		Videz la corbeille.
La bonne nouvelle c'est que maintenant vous jtes en sicuriti. La mauvaise
nouvelle, c'est que si vous avez trouvi ce virus sur votre ordinateur,
vous
risquez d'avoir contamini les personnes auxquelles vous avez envoyi des
mails depuis plusieurs mois. C'est ce qui m'arrive et c'est la raison de
ce
message. Alors faites comme moi, contactez les  personnes de votre carnet
d'adresses et envoyez leur ce message immidiatement.
