I do not know that it is correct,....

Below is a copy of the actual text which was passed around.


If you receive an email titled "WIN A HOLIDAY" DO NOT open it. It
will erase everything on your hard drive. Forward this letter out to as
people as you can. This is a new, very malicious virus and not many
know about it. This information was announced yesterday morning from
Microsoft; please share it with everyone that might access the internet.

Once again, pass this along to EVERYONE in your address book so that
this may be stopped.

Also, do not open or even look at any mail that says "RETURNED OR
UNABLE TO DELIVER" This virus will attach itself to your computer
components and Render them useless. Immediately delete any mail items
that say this. AOL has said that this is a very dangerous virus and that

is NO remedy for it at this time. Please practice cautionary measures
forward this to all your online friends ASAP.
