Subject:  Fw: Virus Alert

I just received this message from the Naval Postgraduate School so I
think this is a serious threat.

Geo Lane
Just received this from the security people here at work- this is NOT a
joke !


If you receive an email titled "It Takes Guts to Say Jesus" DO
NOT OPEN IT. It will erase everything on your hard drive. This
information was announced yesterday morning from IBM; AOL
states that this is a very dangerous virus, much worse than
"Melissa," and that there is NO remedy for it at this time.

Some very sick individual has succeeded in using the reformat
function from orton Utilities causing it to completely erase all
documents on the hard drive.

It has been designed to work with Netscape Navigator and
Microsoft Internet Explorer. It destroys Macintosh and IBM
compatible computers. This is a new, very malicious virus
and not many people know about it.

Pass this warning along to EVERYONE in your address book
and please share it with all your online friends ASAP so that
this threat may be stopped.

Please practice cautionary measures and tell anyone that may
have access to your computer.

Forward this warning to everyone that might access the Internet
