This is an outright hoax. It first appeared in October 2001 .


DO NOT OPEN "WTC Survivor" It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive.

It will come to you in the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat a friend sent it to me, but called and warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he can't even start his computer!

Forward this to everyone in your address book.

I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all. If you receive an email called "WTC Survivor" do not open it. Delete it right away!

This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer.

If you receive a message about this then please ignore it and don't pass it on as this only serves to propagate this hoax.
