Please everyone - before propagating hoaxes like this do everyone a service
by checking it out at a reliable virus checking centre first.

A 5 minute check of both McAfee and Vet sites show clearly that this is a
hoax which has been around for some time.

Mark's encouragement to take care anyway is still worth noting.

Get yourself a good virus checker and update regularly - weekly if possible.
Having been a recipient of several viruses - probably from members of this
list  - I know how important it is - and the problems of getting a clean
system again after an infection.

Happy birding,

Trevor Hampel
