"I LOVE YOU"




How sweet to receive a message saying "I love you"?. 
In may 4, 2000 and in less than 6 hours
a virus struck hundreds, of thousands of computer in Asia,
Europe, and United States. this virus was called
" I LOVE YOU" virus.
It spreads through e-mail attachments.
Users who were infected received a message says "I love you".
Once the attachment was opened the computer would
generate e-mails to everyone on the address book.
It was reported that this virus caused an estimate $5.5 to
8.7 billion damages.This virus was created by a Filipino,
Reomel Lamores, also known as Spyder.

I remember this guy since he was a sensation here in the country ages ago.

The police and the NBI all tried to find him and he was found, he was turned over to the US Government. I couldn't undersatnd why did our government did that.

Anyways, that person (allegedly) is now working for US.

So before you open an email, make sure that it's not a virus :D
