Attention to the new virus
Be careful, very dangerous
A new virus (DANA) was discovered :

Probably the hacker Jade,
Responsable for the gratest disaster at the moment, is
sending a e-mail entitled LEARN TO LOVE.

McAfee announced that it is much powerful, more then the
virus MELISSA and the I LOVE YOU, and "has no innoculation !!!".

This new virus will "eat" all information in the hard disk
and will destroy the Netscape Navigator and the Microsoft
Internet Explorer.

Do not open anything that has the subject LEARN TO LOVE and,
If possible, send this message to all your contacts of e-mail.

Many people don’t know about this virus yet
So, it’s better send this message as fast as possible before
it can contaminate our and your system.
