Text of the hoax reads as follows:

There is a sever strain of Virus called "Foot n Mouth Location" currently being released in the UK. This is NOT A Hoax! If you receive any attachment claiming to detail Foot N Mouth infected farms DO NOT OPEN IT!

The virus is disguised as a the now common Visual Basic Script (.vbs) but the extension has been re-configured to appear as a .doc file (Std Word Template file)

Once opened the Virus will behave in a similar way to the "Love" virus of last Year.

Thanks for your time.
