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.
