CATEGORY: Hoax virus alerts

One of several hoax virus alerts which surfaced soon after the 9/11/01 terrorism event. The email contains no credible information.

Like many hoax virus alerts, this one implores the recipient to forward it to everyone they know. "Its better to get this mail 100 times rather than not knowing about it..." Logically, you could forward 24 more copies of the alert to the person who sent it to you. But, um, Vmyths doesn't actually recommend it.
