Text of this virus hoax reads as follows:
A friend of mine recently received a file
"Trickor1.exe". When he opened the file, a
halloween cartoon greeting appeared and asked
"trick or treat". He thought it was cute until
he found out the trick was really on him! This
is a very dangerous virus. His entire harddrive
was wiped out and could not be re-formatted.
Unfortunately he had access to a network and the
entire network was also wiped out! The virus
then attached a unknown remote server line to
his company's network and phone lines. All of
these lines were immediately clogged up as the
unknown server used their phonelines to make
out-of-country calls and call various pornlines.
This could happen on a regular home modem, or a
company server. The amount of charges that
could be applied to your line depends on the
number of lines and size of your company's
server. This little email greeting could cost
you or your company lots of money and time, so
please be on the lookout!! I checked into and it
has a few alternate names. It can be known as
(could be in .exe or .zip format):
Please be on the lookout for any of these files
attached to emails. There could be various subjects
on the email title but an example is: Trick or Treat,
you make the call. There usually isn't any content
in the body of the email, but there could be.
Pass this along to everyone you know!!!
