Exclamation URGENT: Virus Alert

Ok, it seems another virus is on the loose. I just got this from CNN's web site:

There is a new deadly virus on the loose. It is transmitted via floppy disk, and attachments in e-mail. This virus is not a macro type that attacks Outlook, rather it's a true virus that alters the state of the computer. It was first reported after a car show in Carlisle, PA. Apparently all participants in the show were givin a "goody bag" that contained a floppy disk. This disk is worried to be infected with the virus. The virus was activated when the program on the disk was installed. It then proceeded to attack various portions of the computer. Users have reported pop-up's appearing that state the PC contains a P6 6ghz proccessor, and a large amount of RAM. When checking file sizes the sizes are exagerated, as is the disk size. One user stated his drive claimed to have 3 TerraBytes of hard disk space free when he only recalls installing a 15gig hard disk. It also attacks the video display, changing the wall paper to contain various images. These seem to be based on what type of processor the user has. AMD processors display things like the Intel Inside logo, "Contains Coppermine Technology", and "Genuine AMD Pentium", Intel users have seen things such as "Athalon technology", and "multiple floating point processors". It also tricks the user into thinking they can run and install various high requirement programs. One user with a 486dx claimed it said he could install and run Quake3 with all the settings turned to their maximum. He tried, and the computer crashed.

Those are only a few of the effects of the virus, and as you can see, it is very deadly. It is unsure where the virus derived from, but experts have dubbed it the "Riceboy Virus". Be on the look out for the "Riceboy Virus" and make sure all AntiVirus programs are brought up to date, and are functioning.


So there you have it, the "Riceboy Virus" is on the loose.

I'm telling you the more you scrape your old truck along the ground, the faster it goes...

I'd start looking at the guy with the VW, with the Acura symbol and "powered by Honda" emblem! LOL!

Question

Yeah is there a "Type R" Impreza? I saw one of the Non- I Club imprezas with a decal on the back. Just curious.
