El texto de la versión en holandés es el siguiente:

Subject: WAARSCHUWING : Ernstig Virus in aantochtAangekondigd door CNN: het ergste virus ooit gekend. Een nieuw virus werd pasontdekt en volgens Microsoft normen is dit virus het meest vernielendooit!!!!!!!!!
Dit virus werd gisteren namiddag ontdekt door McAfee en er werd nog geenbescherming ontwikkeld. Het virus vernietigt gewoon Sector Zero van de hardeschijf, waar alle vitale informatie van de computer gestockeerd is.Het viruswerkt als volgt:
Het verzendt zich automatisch naar alle adressen van uw address book onder denaam "A Virtual Card for You". Zodra de zogezegde virtuele kaart geopend wordt,blokkeert de computer en moet de gebruiker heropstarten.
Op het ogenblik dat de toetsen "ctrl+alt+del" of de reset toets gebruiktworden, vernietigt het virus Sector Zero, wat een definitieve vernietiging vande harde schijf betekent.
Volgens CNN heeft het virus gisteren op een paar uur tijd paniek gezaaid in NewYork. Open dus geen e-mail met als onderwerp "A Virtual Card for You".
Zodra u zo 'n mail ontvangt, moet u deze onmiddellijk deleten. Bovendien heeftIntel het bestaan van een andere zeer vernielende virus aangekondigd.
Indien u een e-mail ontvangt met als onderwerp "An Internet Flower for You",moet u deze onmiddellijk deleten, zonder open te doen. Het virus vernielt alle"dynamic link libraries" files (.DLL).
Uw
pc zal onmogelijk kunnen heropstarten!
Stuur dit bericht naar al uw kennissen.
Beter 25 maal ontvangen dan niet.
