A new virus is floating around via email of cute budweiser frogs, don't download, as it will destroy all data on your computer.

There has been a Budweiser frogs virus hoax circulating for over 3 years. Has someone actually built a real virus to match the hoax now?

Hi Everyone,

A couple of years ago I found a small program on a mates computer, it was the three Budweiaser frogs, is this program I had a virus? It didn't seem to do much.

I had something about two years ago. It started out as just the sound of crickets. I looked all over the house trying to find the little *%#@*&$. The sound kept getting louder until I finally realized it was coming from the computer. Then the screen flashed blue and up popped an animated frog and it "ribetted" at me ... then disappeared. That was it! Nothing since.

Tis a hoax...

I typically go to antivirus.com [antivirus.com] when these pop up. You can perform a search based on the virus name(s) and find out more information.
