PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE TO YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CONTACTS! In the coming days, you should be aware.....

Do not open any message with an attachment called: Invitation FACEBOOK, regardless of who sent it. It is a virus that opens an Olympic torch that burns the whole hard disc C of your computer.

This virus will be received from someone you had in your address book .. That's why you should send this message to all your contacts. It is better to receive this email 25 times to receive the virus and open it .. If you receive a mail called: Invitation FACEBOOK, though sent by a friend, do not open it and delete it immediately. It is the worst virus announced by CNN. A new virus has been discovered recently that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever.

It is a Trojan Horse that asks you to install an adobe flash plug-in. Once you install it, it's all over. 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 of their function is saved.

SNOPES SAYS THIS IS TRUE............

Doug for the alert. Through all the years, I had my share of viruses. Some so nasty I would need to dig deep to figure out the solution to dispose of the problem(s) (Yeah...some viruses come plural in emails and freeware/shareware). One day I would hope I could meet a "developer" of such destruction, just so I could knock his teeth down his throat!

A virus that actually physically burns your whole hard disk? Wow.. that sounds nasty. Especially if you're resting a notebook on your lap at the time.
don't know if i would trust someone who believes that burning the hard drive is really burning hard drive.. burning hard drive is old terminology that means that the hard drive disk sector is being rewritten and is not a good thing. also i just received this email From zone alarm about the Ramnit worm that is spreading on facebook
Quote:
The rapidly-spreading Ramnit worm is stealing Facebook passwords and hijacking Facebook accounts. The worm launches threatening posts to your entire list of friends. These posts may look harmless, but they contain malicious links that spread the threat to your friends. You need extra protection!
so as with anything on the INTERNET just be careful what you click on and u 2 can still have fun. surf safe and play hard........

"Whenever anyone preaches disunity, tries to pit one of us against the other, through class warfare, race hatred or religious intolerance, you know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom and destroy our very lives...and we know what to do about it. Working together to produce an ever greater abundance of material and spiritual values for all. That is the secret of American prosperity."
