Invitation Virus

By
Real Estate Agent with Prominent Realty Group

I received this email from a friend and thought I'd pass it along:

You should be alert during the next days:

Do not open any message with an attached file 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.

In others words, you are out of luck. As always, its wise to have a back up of your important information. A cheap and easy solution is a USB external hard drive. They are sold everywhere, and some come with a software suite that will back up everything for you. -cr

This is a farce. No virus can literally burn a hard drive or any of the computers componants. I'm a computer technician. A virus can make you have to reformat your hard drive, and ruin your partitions, but it cannot do physical harm to  your componants -- lvvr.com
