Identifying Internet And E-Mail Hoaxes

Have you by chance been warned today about a powerpoint presentation that could destroy all the contents of your computer? If so, you are not alone. But we've got some good news for you.

It's a hoax, one that first showed up back in 2002. An e-mail may warn you that a powerpoint presentation called Life Is Beautiful, when opened, will render your p-c useless. But computer experts say the warning isn't true, that the whole thing is just a hoax designed to cause panic. They also ask that you do not pass on messages about it because those messages only serve to feed the hoax.
