FAMILY PICTURES VIRUS sent in by Denise DuMouchel; May 30, 2001

A hoax virus alert created as a direct rip-off of the PrettyPark virus alert chain letter. The hoaxster merely changed "PrettyPark" to "Family Pictures."

Like PrettyPark, it claims Intel issued the alert, and it urges people to "forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all."

Two variations of this hoax already exist. One calls it the "New Family Pictures" virus; another calls it the "New Pictures of Family" virus.

EMAIL VIRUS HOAX

Name: Family Pictures
Type: Virus hoax
Danger:
None
Description:

Text of the hoax reads as follows: DO NOT OPEN "NEW PICTURES OF FAMILY" It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive. It will come to you in the form of an I-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat a friend sent it to me, but called & warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he cant even start his computer!

Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all.

Also: Intel announced that a new and very destructive virus was discovered recently. If you receive an email called "FAMILY PICTURES," do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer. Your computer will not be able to boot up

Important:

Many virus hoaxes:

falsely claim to describe an extremely dangerous virus use pseudo-technical language to make impressive-sounding (but impossible) claims falsely claim that the report was issued or confirmed by a well-known company ask you to forward it to all your friends and colleagues.

As usual, you are urged not to pass on warnings of this kind, as the continued re-forwarding of these hoaxes simply wastes time and email bandwidth.

It is possible that you may receive a hoax via email with a file attached. Obviously, such file attachments should be treated with caution as they may be virus infected. Sophos recommends deleting virus hoax emails, whether they contain file attachments or not.

Sophos suggests a policy to help prevent hoaxes from spreading in your company.
