    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.

    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.
