Re: new virus (INVITATION) beware

Thanks for the warning, but as I suspected, this just appears to be another of those hoax e-mails people forward to each other.

No problem, I'm no expert either, but I see a lot of those e-mails floating around.

Re: new virus (INVITATION) beware

I'm sure this point has been made numerous times, but whenever you get info like that search for it on some of the relevant anti-virus sites (mcafee, f-secure, etc) or computer news sites.

I haven't seen one in a little while, but sometimes these hoax e-mails are more dangerous than actual viruses. IE - there have been many that tell you "abcde.exe" is a virus and you should search for it on your computer and delete it. Only to find out, abcde.exe is a crucial operating system file and deleting it will make your computer broke.

And whenever an email tells you "forward this to all of your friends and get the word out...", don't.
