A new computer virus circulating

Thanks to Cheri Slaughter.
NOTE: This could be a hoax, but it is better warned than to be clueless.

(Please see the Snopes article)

Anyone-using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on. This information arrived this morning, Direct from both Microsoft and Norton. Please send it to everybody you know who has access to the Internet. You might receive an apparently harmless e-mail titled, "Mail Server Report." If you open either file, a message will appear on your screen saying: "It is too late now; your life is no longer beautiful." Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC, and the person who sent it to you will gain access to your name, e-mail, and password. This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon. AOL has already confirmed the severity; and the antivirus software's are not capable
of destroying it. The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself "life owner." Please send a copy of this email to all YOUR FRIENDS, and ask them to PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!
