Hoax.Win32.BadJoke.VB may further alarm a victim by displaying messages about reformatting the disk, however no real formatting actually takes place. The severity of the security threat mentioned in the messages all depends on the program author's "sense of humor", however the threat is never real and can therefore be ignored.
