Osama vs Bush Hoax

Osama vs Bush Hoax

Updated:
February 13, 2007



The following hoax has been reported in North America:

There's a new virus which was found recently which will erase the whole 'C' drive. If u get a mail with the subject "Osama Vs Bush", please delete that mail right away. Otherwise it will erase the whole C drive.

As soon as you open it, it asks "will this war affect the world economy?". If you click on any button, your system will be shut down and will never boot again. It already caused a major damage in the US, INDIA and few other parts of the world.

The remedy for this has not yet been discovered. So please forward this mail to as many people as possible and let everybody be aware of this.

Be Careful. I received this in the mail and am passing it along. I hope that you and your computer stay healthy.
Please ignore any messages regarding this hoax and do not pass on messages. Passing on messages about the hoax only serves to further propagate it.
