This was sent to me and I felt I should pass it along.

URGENT !!)
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. READ AND HEED.
This has been verified with Snopes and it is REAL.
PLEASE INFORM EVERYONE

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 AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS:

You should be alert during the next days:

Do not open any message with an attached file 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

Rackem, this is a HOAX. Please be advised that whenever you receive an email with the admonition to "SEND THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW" it's almost always an Internet chain letter designed to travel cyberspace forever (with the help of unwitting victims like yourself).
