I believe you are talking about the Ebola virus. I think it was discovered in 
the mid-seventies in Africa. This virus basically will cause you to bleed to 
death and will cause death in about three weeks. It was mentioned in the 
beginning of the movie "And the band played on..." which was about the 
discovery of HIV and AIDS and I think it was featured recently on an episode of
"48 hours" Hope this helps.
