Here is the text of the hoax:
PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE YOU HAVE AN E-MAIL ADDRESS FOR.
IT IS REAL AND NOT A JOKE:
If you receive an email titled "Blueballs Are Underrated" DO NOT OPEN IT.
It will erase everything on your hard drive. This information was
announced yesterday morning from IBM; AOL states that this is a very
dangerous virus,much worse than "Melissa", and that there is NO remedy for
it at this time..
Some individual has succeeded in using the re-format function from Norton
Utilities causing it to completely erase all documents on the hard drive..
It has been designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft
Internet Explorer. It destroys MacIntosh and IBM compatible computers.
This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it..
Please practice cautionary measures and pass this warning along to
EVERYONE in your address book so that this threat may be stopped."
