    Just had an email about a new VIRUS which is about!! :grrrrr:

    READ IMMEDIATELY

    Get this sent around to your contacts ASAP.. We don't need this spreading around.

    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 file 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 most destructive virus ever.

    This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday 20/01/2009, 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


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

    I don't actually get why people make viruses, I can't get my head around it at all. They must just sit there and be like 'ooo my virus is pissing people off everywhere, I am so cool'. Bastards.

    hmm , maybe .. or maybe more too it ..

    forgive the conspiricy theory here but , ..

    people spend absoultely billions on virus software and getting there computers sorted , by anti-virus companies such as AVG/NORTON/MCAFEE .. etc etc ,

    perhaps the masters of the virus world themselves create viruses and put them on the net .. someone picks it up .. comes running to them spending nearly 100 quid on some anti-virus software ..

    basically the viruses are probably created by the anti-virus companies (avc's) so that the a.v.c's are used and needed. i know a few people that pay yearly for norton anti-virus,which is £60 a year for the whole protection package.. ( i use AVG Free) which is perfect and FREE ..

    it makes alot of sense really, if i had my own anti virus software .. id create loads of virus and wang em out on the net .. and wait too see my subsciptions go up !!

    good lads i say , gettin all crafty

    It's just a chain letter really isn't it, because people who don't understand will be afraid of it. It's obviously been quite a successful email ;)

    well done you have all just parcipitated in whats called a 'chain letter' which you have all believed and will go away and tell your loved ones.

    "inviation virus" "burns your hard drive" first off it would not BURN anything, you burn data to a cd. If this virus could actually achieve this "BURNING", it would either WIPE or FORMAT your hard drive, which would be very hard to do when you have windows running as it locks certain system files so they cant be deleted.

    "shut down your computer immediately" or dont open attachments from email addresses you dont know.

    "This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc" please go away and try and find the zero sector on your hard drive. wiki? google? it dosent exist.

    Use common sense 2009 instead of buying rip off norton or mcafee. AVG and avast do the same thing but there free.

    Trust me, i work in I.T.
