>A Virus has been discovered on Internet that is disguised as CD-ROM shareware.
>
>Unknown hackers have illegally put the Chinon name on a destructive shareware
>file and released it on the Internet. This catastrophic virus is named "CD-IT".
>-- DO NOT DOWNLOAD. IT WILL CORRUPT YOUR HARD DRIVE.  The program, allegedly a
>shareware PC utility that will convert an ordinary CD-ROM drive into a
>CD-Recordable (CD-R) device, which is technically impossible, instead destroys
>critical system files on a user's hard drive. The program also immediately
>crashes the CPU, forces the user to reboot and stays in memory.
>
>Widest dissemination is requested.
