The FCC released a warning last Wednesday concerning a
matter of major importance to any regular user of the InterNet.
Apparently, a new computer virus has been engineered by a user of
America Online that is unparalleled in its destructive
capability. Other, more well-known viruses such as Stoned,
Airwolf, and Michaelangelo pale in comparison to the prospects of
this newest creation by a warped mentality.
What makes this virus so terrifying,
said the FCC, is the fact
that no program needs to be exchanged for a new computer to be
infected. It can be spread through the existing e-mail systems
of the InterNet. Once a computer is infected, one of several
things can happen. If the computer contains a hard drive, that
will most likely be destroyed. If the program is not stopped, the
computer's processor will be placed in an nth-complexity infinite
binary loop - which can severely damage the processor if left
running that way too long. Unfortunately, most novice computer
users will not realize what is happening until it is far too

FCC WARNING!!!!! -----DEEYENDA PLAGUES INTERNET
The Internet community has again been plagued
by another computer
virus. This message is being spread throughout the Internet,
including USENET posting, EMAIL, and other Internet activities.
The reason for all the attention is because of the nature of this
virus and the potential security risk it makes. Instead of a
destructive Trojan virus (like most viruses!), this virus referred
to as Deeyenda Maddick, performs a comprehensive search on your
computer, looking for valuable information, such as email and
login passwords, credit cards, personal inf., etc.
The Deeyenda virus also has the capability to stay
while running a host of applications and operation systems, such
as Windows 3.11 and Windows 95. What this means to Internet users
is that when a login and password are send to the server, this
virus can copy this information and SEND IT OUT TO UN UNKNOWN
The reason for this warning
is because the Deeyenda virus is
virtually undetectable. Once attacked your computer will be
unsecure. Although it can attack any O/S this virus is most
likely to attack those users viewing Java enhanced Web Pages
(Netscape 2.0+ and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0+ which are
running under Windows 95). Researchers at Princeton University
have found this virus on a number of World Wide Web pagesand fear

A deadly new computer virus that actually causes home
computers to explode in a hellish blast of glass fragments and
flame has injured at least 47 people since August 15,
horrifying authorities who say millions of people are risking
injury, blindness or death every time they sit down to work at
"Computer viruses of the
past could disable your computer, but
this virus goes a step further -- and can kill you," declared
Martin Heriden, a computer expert who specializes in
identifying computer viruses. "This virus doesn't carry the
usual 'markers' that enable it to be detected. It slips
through the cracks, so to speak.
"It is an extremely complicated
process. But suffice it to say
that the virus affects the computer's hardware, creating
conditions that lead to dangerous short circuits and power
surges. The end result? Explosions -- powerful
explosions. And millions of Internet users are at risk."
The virus, nicknamed
Death Ray by experts like Heriden,
surfaced in England on August 1. A 24-year-old college student
was permanently blinded when his 15-inch color monitor
exploded in his face.
do you protect yourself? I wish I knew,"
Heriden. "You either stop using the Internet or you take your
chances until we can get a handle on this thing and get rid of
it for good.

THIS MESSAGE WILL AGAIN BE REPEATED IN MID FEBRUARY.
*** Attention ***
It's that time again!
As many of you know, each
year the Internet must be shut down
for 24 hours in order to allow us to clean it. The cleaning
process, which eliminatesdead email and inactive ftp, www and
gopher sites, allows for a better working and faster Internet.
This year, the cleaning
process will take place from 12:01
a.m.. GMT on February 27 until 12:01 a.m. GMT on February 28
(the time least likely to interfere with ongoing work). During
that 24-hour period, five powerful Internet search engines
situated around the world will search the Internet and delete
any data that they find.
In order to protect
your valuable data from deletion we ask
that you do the following:
all terminals and local area networks from
their Internet connections.
2. Shut down
all Internet servers, or disconnect them from
all disks and hardrives from any connections
to the Internet.
4. Refrain from
connecting any computer to the Internet in
We understand the
inconvenience that this may cause some
Internet users, and we apologize. However, we are certain that
any inconveniences will be more than made up for by the

dangerous virus and that there is NO remedy for it at this
time. Please practice cautionary measures and forward this to
all your online friends ASAP.
AOL a déclaré ce message comme étant un canular.
<< Tatiana Gau, Vice President of AOL Integrity Assurance. >>
From a former AOL employee:
I'll try and cut through
the crap, and try to get to the point
of this letter.
I used to work for
America Online, and would like to remain
anonymous for that reason. I was laid off in early September,
but I know exactly why I was laid off, which I will now
Since last December,
I had been one of the many people
assigned to design AOL 4.0 for Windows (AOL 4.0 beta,
codenamed Casablanca). In the beginning, I was very proud of
this task, until I found out the true cost of it. Things were
going fine until about mid-February, when me and 2 of my
colleagues started to suspect a problem, an unexplainable
'Privacy Invasion', with the new version. One of them, who is
a master programmer, copied the finished portion of the new
version (Then 'Build 52'), and took it home, and we spent
nearly 2 weeks of sleepless nights examining and debugging the
program, flipping it inside-out, and here is what we found.
Unlike all previous versions
of America Online, version 4.0
puts something in your hard drive called a 'cookie'. (AOL
members click here for a definition). However, the cookie we
found on Version 4.0 was far more treacherous than the simple
Internet cookie. How would you like somebody looking at your
entire hard drive, snooping through any (yes, any) piece of
information on your hard drive. It could also read your
password and log in information and store it deep in the
program code. Well, all previous versions, whether you like it
or not, have done this to a certain extent, but only with
files you downloaded. As me and my colleagues discovered,
with the new version, anytime you are signed on to AOL, any
top AOL executive, any AOL worker, who has been sworn to
secrecy regarding this feature, can go in to your hard drive
and retrieve any piece of information that they so desire.
Billing, download records, e-mail, directories, personal
documents, programs, financial information, scanned images,
etc. Better start keeping all those pictures on a floppy
This is a totally disgusting
violation of our rights, and your
right to know as well. Since this is undoubtedly 'Top Secret'
information that I am revealing, my life at AOL is pretty much
over. After discovering this inform attain, we started to
inform a few other workers at America Online, so that we could
get a large enough crew to stop this from happening to the
millions of unfortunate and unsuspecting America Online
members. This was in early August. One month later, all
three of us were unemployed. We got together, and figured
there was something we had to do to let the public know.
Unemployed, with one
of us going through a divorce (me) and
another who is about to undergo treatment for Cancer, our
combined financial situation is not currently enough to
release any sort or article. We attempted to create a web
page on three different servers containing in-depth
information on AOL 4.0, but all three were taken down within 2
days. We were running very low on time (4.0 is released early
this winter), so we figured our last hope to reveal this
madness before it effects the people was starting something
similar to a chain letter, this letter you are reading.
Please do the following, to help us expose AOL for who they
really are, and to help us and yourself receive personal
gratification for taking a stand for our freedom:
1. Forward this letter to
as many people as you can (not just
friends and family, as many as you can)!
2. Tell people
who aren't on America Online in person,
especially important people (Private Investigators, Government
workers, City Council)
3. If the information
about the new version isn't exposed by
the time AOL is released early this winter, for your own
protection, DON'T DOWNLOAD AOL 4.0 UNDER ANY CONDITION !!!
Thank you for reading
and examining this information. Me and
my colleagues hope that you will help us do the right thing in
this situation. Enjoy America Online (just kidding!).

1.Le programme Macintosh, AOL4FREE, permettant d'obtenir un compte AOL
illégalement; l'utilisation de ce programme est bien entendu prohibée
par la loi.
2.Faux virus "AOL4FREE" : si le message est un faux virus, les dommages qu'il décrit peuvent cependant être accomplis par un programme avec cheval de Troie, passé dans un attachement; c'est se qui a été réalisé avec le 3ième élément AOL4FREE.
VIRUS ALERT!!! DON'T OPEN E-MAIL NOTING "AOL4FREE"
Anyone who receives this must send
it to as many people as
you can. It is essential that this problem be reconciled
as soon as possible. A few hours ago, I opened an E-mail
that had the subject heading of "AOL4FREE.COM". Within
seconds of opening it, a window appeared and began to
display my files that were being deleted. I immediately
shut down my computer, but it was too late. This virus
wiped me out. It ate the Anti-Virus Software that comes
with the Windows '95 Program along with F-Prot AVS.
Neither was able to detect it. Please be careful and send
this to as many people as possible, so maybe this new virus
can be eliminated.
3.AOL4FREE.COM est un programme qui détruit tous les fichiers
de votre disque dur. Il semble que ce soit le programme qui crée
les comptes illégaux (bien qu'étant un programme DOS et non
Macintosh) et qui exécute la commande DOS "deltree" sur C:\.

of us to save a little girl that's going to die of a serious
and fatal form of cancer. Please send this to everyone you
know...or don't know at that.This little girl has 6 months left
to live her life, and as her last wish, she wanted to send a
chain letter telling everyone to live their life to fullest,

give her and her family a little hope, because with every name
that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3
cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy
sent this to 500 people !!!! So, I know that we can send it to
at least 5 or 6. Come on you guys.... and if you're too
selfish to waste 10-15 minutes and scrolling this and

"It's Not a Joke" Dear Friends,
I wish to warn you
about a new crime ring that is targeting
business travelers. This ring is well organized, well funded,
has very skilled personnel, and is currently in most major
cities and recently very active in New Orleans.
The crime begins when a business
traveler goes to a lounge for
a drink at the end of the work day. A person in the bar walks
up as they sit alone and offers to buy them a drink. The last
thing the traveler remembers until they wake up in a hotel
room bath tub, their body submerged to their neck in ice, is
sipping that drink. There is a note taped to the wall
instructing them not to move and to call 911. A phone is on a
small table next to the bathtub for them to call. The
business traveler calls 911 who have become quite familiar
with this crime. The business traveler is instructed by the
911 operator to very slowly and carefully reach behind them
and feel if there is a tube protruding from their lower
back. The business traveler finds the tube and answers, "Yes."
The 911 operator tells them to remain still, having already
sent paramedics to help. The operator knows that both of the
business traveler's kidneys have been harvested.
This is not a scam
or out of a science fiction novel, it is
real. It is documented and confirmable. If you travel or
someone close to you travels, please be careful.
Another email report:
Yes, this does
happen. My sister-in-law works with a lady
that this happened to her son's neighbor who lives in Houston.
The only "good" thing to this whole story is the fact that the
people doing this horrible crime are very in tune to what
complications can happen afterwards because of the details
precautions they take the time to set up before leaving the
room.The word from my sister-in-law is that the hospital in
Las Vegas (yes, Vegas) prior to transferring him back to
Houston stated that these people know exactly what they are
doing. The incision, etc. was exact and clean. They use
sterile equipment etc. and the hospital stated that other than
the fact that the victim looses a kidney there has not been
any reports of other complications due to non-sterile,
etc. tactics that were used. Please be careful.
Another email report:
Sadly, this is
very true. My husband is
Firefighter/EMT and they have received alerts regarding this
crime ring. It is to be taken very seriously. The daughter
of a friend of a fellow firefighter had this happen to her.
Skilled doctor's are performing these crimes (which, by the
way have been highly noted in the Las Vegas area)!
Additionally, the military has received alerts regarding this.
If more information
on the above subject is received it will
be verified and passed on to keep you updated on this

PBS, NPR (National
Public Radio), and the arts are facing
major cutbacks in funding. In spite of the efforts of each
station to reduce spending costs and streamline their
services, some government officials believe that the funding
currently going to these programs is too large a portion of
funding for something which is seen as "unworthwhile".
Currently, taxes from the general public for PBS equal $1.12
per person per year, and the National Endowment for the Arts
equals $.64 a year in total.
A January 1995 CNN/USA Today/Gallup
poll indicated that 76% of
Americans wish to keep funding for PBS, third only to national
defense and law enforcement as the most valuable programs for
