Descripción

Cat email hoax virus is very similar to the famous Good Times hoax.

Subject line of this email hoax virus: VIRUS ALERT.

Text of the hoax reads as follows: I have received the following from the USA: In case you receive an e-mail titled "How to Give a Cat a Colonic" DO NOT open it. It will erase everything on your hard drive. Forward this message to as many people as you can. This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it. This information was announced yesterday morning by IBM; please share it with everyone in your address book so that the spreading of the virus may be stopped. This is a very dangerous virus and there is no remedy for it at this time. Please practice cautionary measures and forward this to all your online friends ASAP.

Some variants of this hoax claim the email is titled "How to give your cat a colonic".

In common with many hoaxes, this one: falsely claims to describe an extremely dangerous virus falsely claims that the report was issued by a computer company asks you to forward it to all your friends

As usual, you are urged not to pass on warnings of this sort, as the continued re-forwarding of chain letter hoaxes simply wastes email bandwidth.

Also, you are urged not to run any program you receive via email, whether a warning exists about it or not. Programs received in this way should be treated as untrusted, and avoided.
