WARNING: If you receive an e-mail with a file called
California, do not open the file. The file contains the WOBBLER
virus. This information was announced yesterday morning from
IBM; AOL states that this is a very dangerous virus, much worse
than "Melissa", and that there is NO remedy for it at this time.
Some very sick individual has succeeded in using the reformat
function from Norton Utilities causing it to completely erase
all documents on the hard drive. It has been designed to work
with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. It
destroys Macintosh and IBM compatible computers. This is a new,
very malicious virus and not many people know about it. Pass
this warning along to EVERYONE in your address book ASAP so that
this threat may be stopped.
Please ignore this message and don't pass it on.
