The hoax messages includes
the following "warning":
Another new virus has been discovered. It
arrives in an e-mail titled "California IBM". Microsoft has announced that it
is very bad, worse than "Love Letter". There is no remedy or cure. It will
consume all the information in the hard drive, and will destroy Netscape
Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Do not open anything with this
title, and pass this message on to your e-mail contacts. Right now not many
people know about this, so please pass it on as quickly as possible.
