I thought my readers would like to know about an e-mail virus that may hit them. There's no real cause for alarm — I share this warning mainly so that you will know what has happened when it inevitably hits your computer. Unfortunately even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot protect you from this one!
It may have originated in Egypt and seems to affect mainly those who were born prior to 1960. Since there seems to be no remedy for this virus, it has been aptly nicknamed:
Here are the ten most common symptoms of infection:
1. It causes you to send the same e-mail twice.
2. It causes you to send a blank e-mail.
3. It causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person.
4. It causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you.
5. It causes you to forget to attach the attachment.
6. It causes you to hit "SEND" before you've finished.
7. It causes you to hit "DELETE" instead of "SEND."
8. It causes you to hit "SEND" when you meant to hit "DELETE."
9. It causes you to "reply to all" instead of just to the sender.
10. It causes you to forward the e-mail to everyone in your address book.
It is called the "C-Nile virus." Surprisingly your cell phone can also be infected with this virus. It causes you to send a blank text, and then you call to see if the other person got the text. He then has to reply, "Yes I got the text, but you forgot the message."
Just so you understand what you're dealing with, those affected by C-Nile are usually in D-Nile that they have it.
This is one virus warning you don't have to check out on Snopes.
Do you have any experiences with this virus that you would like to share — either as a recipient or a propagator of the virus?
