    Virus Warning

    Recieved today:


    "DEAR RECEIVER, You have just received a Taliban virus. Since
    we are not so technologically advanced in Afghanistan, this
    is a MANUAL virus.
    Please delete all the files on your hard disk yourself and
    send this mail to everyone you know.
    Thank you very much for helping me.

    Abdullah,
    Talibanian hacker
    Afghanistan"

    Actually that circulated as an Amish Virus a few months ago. Looks like somebody adapted it to the current situation. Personally i thought the Amish one was funnier.

    OOOHHHH!

    it erased my hard drive, I tried to run an antivirus but it didn't detect it.

    now I'll have to reinstall everything.

    but, I have the virus, so I can see the Assembly code!

    I've also seen a similar type of "virus" called the Irish Virus.

    free advice, don't open any e-mail from some one you don't know.

    why?

    because anyone who knows(me) how can run an exe attachment without you ever knowing about it... so just DONT!

    darn, I couldn't get the source code, I tried to find the file, but there was no trace of it, like it had never existed!

    that is surely the best virus ever, noone can ever get its source
