Default Virus Alert !!!

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 most destructive 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.

Note from mod: This is a hoax. Please refer to http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/invitation.asp
for further details. Thread closed
