Ce canular de virus, qui est apparu en novembre 1998, prétend que la Association of Shareware Professonals (ASP) a distribué un logiciel infecté par un virus informatique.

(ASP logo)

A computer virus was distributed by the Association of Shareware Professionals. The ASP wants to make sure that the shareware principle works for you. To prevent this virus from getting into the hands of children or people who might deliberately or accidentally cause harm, you are requested to contact these officials for clarification before using any software displaying the logo shown above.

Le message se termine par une liste d´officiels et de leurs adresses e-mail. L´intention est probablement de générer un volume important d´e-amil pour les adresses listées. L´alerte devrait être ignorée.
