[IP] virus



====> WARNING:  If you receive an e-mail titled "JOIN THE CREW", do not
open it!

It will erase EVERYTHING on your hard drive!  Send this letter out to as
many people as you can . . . . . . . This is a new virus and not many
people know about it!

This information was reportedly received from IBM by whomever originated
this message.  Please share it with anyone who might access the
Internet.

====> ALSO:  A dangerous virus is propagating across the Internet
through
an e-mail message entitled "PENPAL GREETINGS!".

Any e-mail entitled "PENPAL GREETINGS!" should be deleted WITHOUT
reading
it!!

PENPAL GREETINGS! appears to be a friendly letter asking you if you are
interested in a pen pal, but by the time you have read the letter, a
"Trojan horse" virus will have already infected the boot sector of your
hard drive, destroying all data present.

In addition, PENPAL GREETINGS! is a self-replicating virus that will
automatically forward itself to anyone whose e-mail address is present
in
your mailbox.  This virus will destroy the contents of your hard drive
and has the potential to do the same for everyone whose address is in
your mailbox.  If this virus continues to spread it could do a great
deal
of damage to computer networks worldwide.

====> AND THERE'S MORE:

There is yet another virus going around in the last few days.  Do not
open or even look at any mail labeled "Returned" or "Unable to Deliver". 
This virus will attach itself to your computer components and render
them
useless.  Immediately delete any e-mail items labeled "Returned" or
"Unable to Deliver".  AOL reportedly says this is a very dangerous virus
and that there is no remedy for it at this time.

====> Please forward these warnings to one and all A.S.A.P.  And--be
careful out there!
