    Default **serious virus alert**

    ***IMPORTANT VIRUS ALERT***
    2 separate viruses

    This is real and has been verified by Snopes and by Truth or Fiction. Both viruses are the worst ever seen, and ID'd by McAfee with NO repair for your computer. One is called an Olympic Torch and destroys the C drive, and the other destroys the ZERO sector of your hard drive.

    They are email viruses and may have already accessed your contact list, so do NOT open even if coming from a friend or relative:

    OSAMA BIN LADEN CAPTURED (OR HANGED) opens the Olympic Torch.

    The 2nd is an INVITATION. Do not open anything resembling INVITATION. Your HD will crash immediately, with no fix. These viruses are apparently being circulated in the US and Israel.

    Please pass this info along to everyone you know.

    You know what's funny about those e-mail alerts that say they have been verified by Snopes? Most folks don't take the time to check Snopes and see if it's true or not and just keep spreading the hoax. And that's all this one is too.

    Had one earlier this week at work that said I'd get a free 'puter if I sent this e-mail to eight of my friends, some marketing scheme and it too was supposed to be verified by Snopes.
