Worst Virus Ever

URGENT!!
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. READ AND HEED.I just verified this with Snopes and it is REAL.PLEASE INFORM EVERYONE

Emails with pictures of Osama Bin-Laden hanged are being sent and the moment that you open these emails your computer will crash and you will not be able to fix it!

If you get an email along the lines of “Osama Bin Laden Captured” or “Osama Hanged” don’t open the attachment.

This e-mail is being distributed through countries around the globe, but mainly in the US and Israel .

Be considerate & send this warning to whom ever you know.

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 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.

SEND THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW

Another exagerated e-mail. (While it is good to advice people of security flaws, sending the message once is enough.)

Windows users, its time to put your security in red alert. On the second thought, with a security like that of Windows, Windows users are always on red alert. ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. miss abbi, virus hoax lang po yan. ๐Ÿ™‚ try po ninyo basahin to -> http://hoaxbusters.ciac.org/

    kaya po windows palage ang subject ng mga hoax emails na yan kasi po windows po ang pinakamaraming users. Pero kung isesecure nyo po maige at aalagaan po ng patches/antivirus/etc. ang windows siguradong mahihirapang mahack po ito o kaya masira ng virus ;). Actually check po ninyo yung top 50 “sites with longest running systems by average uptime” ng netcraft:

    http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/today/top.avg.html

    May mga windows boxes pong kasama dyan along with *BSD servers(syempre BSD rocks pa din!) pero wala po akong makita kahit isang linux machine..hehe (siguro kailangang parating ireboot yung mga linux boxes kaya mababa ang uptime ;).

    Kahit hate po ng mga linux fanatics ang windows kailangan pa din po itong aralin kasi nga po yung windows OS ang may pinakamalaking deployment base sa buong mundo at magpapatuloy pa din po ito sa matagal pang panahon :).

    Its better to learn po both Windows and opensource (linux, freebsd, openbsd, netbsd, bsd/os, etc) kasi nga po halos lahat ng malalaking kumpanya sa pilipinas at abroad parating mixed(closed at open source) ang environment nila….hanggang dito na lang muna po…
