Sheep virus

CATEGORY: Myths & urban legends

A hysterical alert about a popular commercial program known as SHEEP.EXE. It claims the program contains a deadly virus. The alert contains no credible information about the threat.

Vmyths.com surmises a well-meaning user "warned" others not to send the commercial program to others ... and this warning quickly devolved into a virus alert.
