Is this hoax or real ? Who knows but these type of messages have become frequent in this internet era. Here is the detailed message which came to my inbox.
DANGEROUS VIRUS IN CIRCULATION, PLEASE READ AND FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS :
You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message with an attachment entitled " POST CARD FROM BEJING", REGARDLESS OF WHO SENT IT TO YOU. IT IS A VIRUS WHICH OPENS A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc of your computer. This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is the reason why you need to send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.
If you receive a mail called " POSTCARD FROM BEJING" even though sent to you by a known person do not open it. straight away delete the mail.
This is the worlds worst virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee recently, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero sector of the Hard disc, where vital information is kept.
