This information is a hoax/scam and should be ignored.
If you receive an email titled "Greetings from Simon Pugh " or anything with the name "Simon Pugh" in the title - DO NOT OPEN IT. It will erase the boot sector of 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 re-format function from Norton Utilities causing it to completely erase the boot sector of your hard drive. It has been designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. 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.
Please ignore any messages regarding this hoax and do not pass on any messages regarding it. Passing on messages about this hoax serves only to further propagate it.
