Take a DEEP breath and go to your nearest search engine and run a search on "wobbler virus." What do you find? http://www.datafellows.com/hoaxes/wobbhoax.htm In 1999 there appeared a new hoax message warning about Wobbler virus. This virus does not exist. But there's a joke program called 'Joke.Win.Aloap' that is detected by Solomon as 'Wobbling Trojan'. The hoax message looks like this: WARNING: If you receive an e-mail with a file called California, do not open the file. The file contains the WOBBLER virus. This information was announced yesterday morning from IBM; AOL states that this is a very dangerous virus, much worse than "Melissa", and that there is NO remedy for it at this time. Some very sick individual has succeeded in using the reformat function from Norton Utilities causing it to completely erase all documents on the hard drive. It has been designed to work with Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. It destroys Macintosh and IBM compatible computers. This is a new, very malicious virus and not many people know about it. Pass this warning along to EVERYONE in your address book ASAP so that this threat may be stopped. =-==================================== Please... think twice before posting virus warnings.
