This is just a quickie, because Im at school and aint meant to be online **sssshhhh**

I got this in myinbox, thought Id let you all know the warning:

READ IMMEDIATELY AND PASS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW

Someone is sending out a very cute screensaver of the Budweiser Frogs.

If you download it, you will lose everything! Your hard drive will crash

and someone from the Internet will get your screen name and password! DO
NOT DOWNLOAD IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
It just went into circulation yesterday. Please distribute this
message.This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about
it. This information was announced yesterday morning from Microsoft.
Please share it with everyone that might access the Internet.

Once again, Pass This Along To EVERYONE in your address book so that this
may be stopped. AOL has said that this is a very dangerous virus and that
there is NO remedy for it at this time.

This is VERY important. If you receive a screen saver from a friend or
anyone you may not know with the Budweiser Frogs in it, DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT
OR OPEN THE FILE!

Press the forward button on your email program and send this notice to

EVERYONE you know. Let's keep our email safe for everyone.

What does a virus have anything to do with someone getting your screen name and password?

Yeah, so all you have to do is watch what e-mail you open. Just don't be stupid about downloading something...

Just the usual email 'chain letter' spam i'm afraid,a variation on the theme of many others.

No need to panic, it's a hoax, just delete it, and follow the usual virus precautions ;)

Besides, i seriously hope no-one here would open a mail with an un-solicited attachment anyway, let alone a screensaver!! :eek:
