McAfee AVERT Labs would like to inform you of an email HOAX.
This email message is just a HOAX, currently we know of no newsgroup message about the HOAX as the initial email states. AVERT has not received any report of a user's hard drive being erased by reading the newsgroup message. We are advising users who receive the email to delete it and DO NOT pass it on as this is how an email HOAX propagates.
Below is the actual text from the message that may be received via email.
Again, if you receive this email delete it and DO NOT pass it on.
