Bob,

Just because the e-mail says it's confirmed legitimate by snopes doesn't mean they're telling the truth. If you actually go to the snopes entry for this (http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/lifeisbeautiful.asp), you'll discover that the "warning" is a hoax that's been circulating since 2002. Please check things like this before sending out messages telling people to "send this to everyone you know".

Thanks,
Frank C.

Pass this on to your email buddies.


Heed the warning. It sounds awful!!!


Anyone using Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on.

This information arrived this morning, Direct from both Microsoft and Norton.
Please send it to everybody you know who has access to the Internet.

You may receive an apparently harmless e-mail with a Power Point presentation ' Life is Beautiful '



If you receive it DO NOT OPEN THE FILE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, and
delete it immediately.

If you open this file, a message will appear on your screen saying:
'It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful. '

Subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC, And the person who
sent it to you will gain access to your name, e-mail and password.

This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon.
AOL has already confirmed the severity, and the antivirus software's
are not capable of destroying it.

The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself 'life owner'.

PLEASE SEND A COPY OF THIS E-MAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, And ask them to
PASS IT ON IMMEDIATELY!

THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY SNOPES </ B>
