Thread: Warning

  1. #1


    URGENT!!! PLEASE CIRCULATE to your family, friends, and
    contacts. In the coming days, DO NOT open any message with an attachment
    called: "Black in the White House", regardless of who sent it to you.
    It is a virus that opens an Olympics torch that burns the whole hard
    disk C of your computer.

    It is the worst virus announced by CNN. This
    new virus has been discovered recently it has been classified by
    Microsoft as the virus most destructive ever. This virus was discovered
    yesterday afternoon by McAfee. There is no repair yet for this kind of
    virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the hard disk,
    where vital information function is stored.

    Just wanna give a warning out to my loyal mmo-champ friends

    cuz we would all know it would suck if you lost everything

    Re: Warning

    I've heard that its just a hoax.
    A moderator at Microsofts forum actually linked to this site and McAfee also says that its an hoax, here is the "virus" in McAfees virus database.

    This email message is just a HOAX. It contains no malicious scripts or malware. McAfee Avert Labs has not received any report of a user's hard drive being erased from opening the email.

    The "Black in the White House" Hoax is believed to have first surfaced around December 2009, approximately one year since Barack Obama was elected as the first African American president of the United States of America, though it's possible that the hoax was originally created much earlier in order to use the elections and subsequent celebrations to stoke the social engineering technique used.

    It is a slightly revised version of a virus hoax circulating since 2000, known as "A Virtual Card for You" or "Destroys Sector Zero" We are advising users who receive the email to delete it and DO NOT pass it on as this is how an email HOAX propagates.

    Below is the actual text from the message that may be received via email.
    Direct quote from McAfee's website I linked.
