Recieved a warning from the UK a few minutes ago.
The new virus called EXAB is starting to get around. apparently most of the anti virus programs can neither detect or destroy it.
If you recieve an email titled 'LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL" ... DO NOT OPEN IT!!
once into your computer it will transfer your information to the hacker who created it.
I recieved this warning from a member in the UK today at 12-03gmt

Billyboy,

I know you posted this with good intentions but it is another hoax that has been known about since 15 January 2002. The details are at the Symantec website here: http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2002-011511-0444-99

The following advice is given at the foot of the analysis by Symantec:

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.

I have noted the header of this thread to show it is a hoax..

Regards,

Brian
