This is what the Symantic (i.e., Norton Utilities) website had to say
about the "Win a Holiday" e-mail:

> Win a Holiday is not a virus. It is a hoax. The "virus" does not exist.
> There is currently no virus that has the characteristics ascribed to
> "Win a Holiday." It is a sham, meant only to panic new or inexperienced
> computer users. In addition, it is a mild variant of the "Join the
> Crew" hoax (form 4).

Cheers,
