Dear list,

Today I heard from IBM some brand new viruses have shown up.
If anybody should receive an E-mail with subject 'JOIN THE CREW' or 'PENPAL
GREETING', don't open it. If you do, it destroys everything on your hard
disk.
The last mail contains a virus called 'Trojan horse', the first has no name
yet.
The Trojan horse seems to mail itself to all addresses it can find in your
post-offices.

No solution is found yet to destroy any of them, nor is any virus-scanner
watching them.
Please be careful, I am not joking.

This is a well-known and documented E-mail hoax.  The only bit of the message
that is true is that AV packages don't look for them - for the obvious
reason...
