A REAL LIVE VIRUS, "SULFNBK.EXE," IS PROBABLY IN YOUR COMPUTER.
I just received this virus warning and checked to find that IT IS IN MY
COMPUTER. As best as I can tell I received it around 10/23/2001. The
likelyhood is high that now it is in your computer also looming in the
background waiting to become effective and do damage.
Please read about in the following e-mail, then follow the simple
instructions to destroy it.
If your computer was infected, you may have infected others with your
e-mails. Please send this to everyone and anyone you may have sent
e-mail to since 10/23/2001.
