I got this from one of my Contacts in the Buiz, apparently this virus is up and coming and from the sound of it , is a real Nasty too.
Just do not open any Messages in your e-mail titled " Invitation "


Charlie
=======================================================================================



Hi All,

I checked with Norton Antivirus and they are gearing up for this virus so I believe this is real.

I checked snopes.com and this is for real. Get this sent around to your contacts ASAP, we don't need this spreading around.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS:

You should be alert during the next days: Do not open any message with an attached filed 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.

SEND THIS E- MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

COPY THIS E-MAIL AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS AND REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US.

I had Norton for 4 yrs and I could not stand having anyone say Bad stuff about it, I was a confirmed Symantec supporter Until My buddy talked me in to getting Panda Platnum Internet Security.
Not to sound like an advertisement for Panda, But With Norton I was always getting Download Trojans and litle dropper files which load crap onto your System.
Anyone who spends as much time as I do on the Computer surfing needs a Kick a** Virus Protection.
I have had Panda 2 years now and have not had one single virus.
Is it expensive?.............Yes about 80.00 bucks to get started , but you can renew for as little as 25.00 bucks later on.

Does Norton Blow a** Chunks?.................Yes

If you surf the Net get the best, and in my opinion its Panda, I think the company is out of Austraila?
Sorry for the misspelling.
Any ways thats enough advertising , just be careful with this Virus sounds very bad .
