Additional Details The warning is completely false and is nothing more than a hoax.
The hoax message contains the following text:
- Please read the attached warning issued today .
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.
FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW . . .
REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US.
Forwarding such hoax messages is discouraged. If you receive a version of this hoax, delete the message.
