I just got this email from tons of people (about 21 peeps). It's about a computer virus. It says:


Person who sent this to me evidently checked this out so I'm passing it
on.
--------------------------
I checked snopes.com and this is for real..

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 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

Y'know, one of these days there's gonna be an e-mail virus where it's in one of those e-mails warning about an e-mail virus. I'm surprised no one has thought of that yet.

It's true, isn't it? The whole concept of e-mail warnings is like saying "Hey, did you hear about that new STD outbreak? Yeah, there's information about it tattooed on my--"

Well, you get the idea.
