I received the following warning from a friend today --- but its a hoax
see http://www.hoax-slayer.com/black-in-white-house-virus-hoax.shtml

"However, the information in the message is untrue. There is no a virus 
like the one described in the warning. In fact, the warning is just a 
newer incarnation of an older virus hoax that has circulated for several 

The hoax slayer has a great pic of a hard disk burning:-)

 >In the coming days, Do not open any message with an attachment called: 
Black in the White House,
Regardless of who sent you ... It is a virus that opens an Olympic torch 
that burns the whole hard disk C
of your computer. This virus will come from a known person who you have 
in your list

Directions. . That's why you should send this message to all your 
contacts. It is better to receive this email 25 times than to receive 
the virus and open ..If you receive a message called: Black In The White 
House, even if it is sent by a friend, do not open and shut down your 
machine immediately. It is the worst virus announced by CNN. A new virus 
has been discovered recently it has been classified by Microsoft as the 
virus most destructive ever. This virus was discovered yesterday 
afternoon by Mc Afee. And there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. 
This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the hard
disk, where information vital function is stored
