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
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
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.
