Today I recieved an email from a very reliable friend which said the following.

Emails with pictures of Osama Bin-Laden hanged are being sent and the moment
that you open these emails your computer will crash and you will not be able to
fix it!
>If you get an email along the lines of "Osama Bin Laden Captured"
or "Osama Hanged" don't open the attachment.
>
>This e-mail is being distributed through countries around the globe, but mainly
in the US and Israel.

>Be considerate & send this warning to whomever you know.

>PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING A MONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS:

So if you get an email like that or something else along thoses lines please post it and tell as much people as possible.

Less the forward ">"s:

Never open attatchments from people you don't know, anyway. Period.


EDIT---

PS, I actually bothered to read some of the text, and if I wasn't wretchedly sunburned, I'd have smacked myself in the head when I read this ">This virus simply destroys the Zero S ector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept. "

It simply destroys the "Zero S ector"; it then "hacks the mainframe" and makes you "lose memory." Sorry, couldn't help but add this.
