    I just got this in my e-mail from a friend and thought it best to share.

                You  should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message with an attachment entitled  'POSTCARD FROM
    HALLMARK,'regardless of who sent it  to you. It is a virus which opens
    A POSTCARD  IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your

                This  virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is  the reason why you need to send this e-mail to all  your contacts. It is better to receive this  message 25 times than to receive the virus and  open it.

                If  you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a friend, do not open it! Shut down  your computer immediately. This is the worst virus  announced by  CNN.

                It  has been classified by Microsoft as the most
    destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered  by McAfee
    yesterday, and there is no repair yet  for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys  the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital  information is  kept.

    That is an internet hoax e-mail. This worst ever virus is NOT real. Please do not forward on this e-mail. Spreading bad information can confuse people with real viruses. Apparently this hoax has been around since like 2008 and still lives on.  As proof here are two sources debunking the e-mail. :
