Carrying A Torch For You
As if we weren't getting enough legitimate warnings about viruses, this one appears to be a hoax about a virus that apparently does not exist, according to the Olympics website. It purports to be a warning about an email with the reference line "invitation." According to the message, when you open up this message, it displays an Olympic torch -- nice right? But, it also unleashes a virus purported to destroy your entire hard drive. The message cites a number of news organizations and security vendors discussing how catastrophic the malware is. But, according to the website, no such exploit is underway.
