Just received this through one of the SCA lists I'm on.  I recognize the name as one who regularly posts on the list.  I assume this is not a hoax, but if anyone knows otherwise let us know.  Right now, I'm taking it seriously and passing it along.

VIRUS ALERT!!     http://www.snopes. com/computer/ virus/zafi. asp
This one is real - NOT a hoax . . . 
You should be alert during the next days:
 Do not open any message with an attached file called 'Merry Christmas'
 regardless of who sent it. It is a virus that opens as an Open Log Fire 
 and will burn the whole hard disc in your computer.
This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address
 in his/her contact list, that is why you should send this e-mail to all
 your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to 
 receive the virus and open it.
If you receive a mail called 'Merry Christmas', though sent by a friend, do
 not open it and shut down your computer immediately. This is the worst
 virus announced, it has been classified by Microsoft as the most
 destructive virus ever.
This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair
 yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector
 of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept.

God Bless America
