A friend left this message in my offline yahoo messenger box. Does anyone know anything about this?

"I haven't been able to verify the validity of this potential threat...but am sending it on JUST IN CASE.. dancingwolf51 (11/8/2005 2:56:27 PM): Someone by name of Vivekabarathi@yahoo.com may request to add you to messenger. donít accept it. Its a virus. Tell everyone on your bulletin because if somebody on your list adds them, you get the virus too. Tell everyone on your list not to open anything from Vivekabarathi. It is a hard drive killer and a very horrible virus. pass this letter to everyone on your IM list.. . Right click on the group name of your IM list and click Send Message to all"

Thank you, both, for reading and replying.

Vicky, thank you for the link. I sent it to a friend who sent it to me, so she can read it.
