PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TOWARDS ALL THE PEOPLE, YOU JUST SCARED!

This hoax claims "If you receive an e-mail titled "WIN A HOLIDAY" DO NOT
open it, it will erase everything on your hard drive. Forward this letter
out to as many people as you can." 

This message is a hoax. There is no chance to win a vacation; there is no
such virus; and there is no reason to pass this message on to as many people
as you can. As with all hoaxes, the best thing you can do is to delete it
and forget about it. 

The message itself is the virus, because it is spread all over the world,
always telling that "MS announced yesterday", and it is around since 1994!
