The following email was sent to some members of the university community. The email is a hoax.
Subject: Fw: URGENT!………PLEASE READ AND SEND TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
Better safe than sorry………….
URGENT………PLEASE READ AND SEND TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE TO YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CONTACTS!
In the coming days, you should be aware…..Do not open any message with an attachment called:Invitation FACEBOOK, regardless 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 your address book. That’s why we urge you to send this message to all your 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.
