PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS:



You should be alert during the next days:

Do not open any message with an attached filed called "Invitation" regardless of who sent it, It is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch
which "burns" the whole hard disc C of 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 "invitation", though sent by a friend, do not open it and shut down your computer immediately. This is the
worst virus announced by CNN, it has been classified by Microsoft as the mostdestructive 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

SEND THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW ,

COPY THIS E-MAIL AND SEND! IT TO YOUR FRIENDS

AND REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US

This is a hoax - don't forward it to anyone - it is a long running variation of a hoax. smile

If you get one of these types of messages check it out first on this brilliant site which seems to pick them all up:

The easiest way to avoid the problem is delete anything that isn't from someone you know.

a good rule of thumb is NEVER forward a mail like this to a bulk of users 99.9999% of the time it will be a hoax.

A quick search on google using some key words in the email, will show that it is a hoax usually.

Also on this subject, if you ever have to bulk email for a legit reason, always use bcc - never cc as people do not want to end up on another mailing list.

Thanks.
