Just received email from a friend warning about a virus called WTC survivor. Apparently it will appear to come from someone you know and will wipe your C drive. (WTC stands for World Trade Center)

It's a spam email and the virus doesn't actually exist.

See snopes for details.

Spammers love stuff like this - people will react to virus warnings and pass the email on therefore doing the spammers job for them.
