Subject: URGENT!!
> PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE TO YOUR FRIENDS, 
> FAMILY, CONTACTS!
> In the coming days, you should be aware…..Do not

> of who sent it. It is a virus that opens an OlympIc torch that burns the 
> whole hard disc C of your computer.
> This virus will be received from someone you had in

> contacts. It is better to receive this email 25 times than to receive the 
> virus and open it.
> If you receive an email called: Invitation FACEBOOK, 
> though sent by a friend, do not open it and delete it immediately. It is 
> the worst virus announced by CNN. A new virus has been discovered recently 
> that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever.
> It is a Trojan Horse that asks you to install an 
> adobe flash plug-in. Once you install it, it’s all over. 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 of their function is 
> saved.

  1. There are many such events these days and it is harder and harder to find out which ones are true. Makes you wonder how safe the internet is. Security protection is no longer a want but an actual necessity I think.
