new virus

I recieved this in an e-mail this morning, just curious if its something to worry about......

READ  IMMEDIATELY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HI ALL  THIS was sent to me by our son who is in charge of the  computers for the state of Florida -- whenever he  receives anything like this it is a warning to the State  as well as all us little people --

VERY  IMPORTANT , PLEASE READ THIS

Anyone-using  Internet mail such as Yahoo, Hotmail,
 AOL  and so on.   This information arrived this  morning,  Direct  from bothMicrosoft and Norton Please send it to  everybody you know who has  Access  to the Internet. You may receive an apparently harmless  e-mail titled 'Mail Server Report' If you open either  file, a message will appear on your screen saying: 'It  is too late now, your life is no longer  beautiful....'

Subsequently you will LOSE  EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC, And the person who sent it to you  will gain access to your
 Name,  e-mail and password.   This is a new virus  which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon.    AOL has already confirmed the severity, and  the anti virus software's are not capable of destroying  it.

The virus has been created by a hacker who  calls himself 'life owner'.

PLEASE SEND A COPY OF  THIS E-MAIL
 TO  ALL YOUR FRIENDS, And ask them to  PASS  IT ON IMMEDIATELY!

THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY  SNOPES.

This email is Hoax and nothing to be worry. If there is something emergency as it said, Microsoft will notify user in their website and also if you subscribe Microsoft News it will send to you. Also do not pass it around, other people might also pass it around and then so many people will get worry and extra email storage will fill .
If something as NEW virus is there then you just could report it. If it is not easy to remove it will Quartine and after removal engine designed it will remove.

As conclution, remove it and do not pass it arround.
