Below is another “Facebook Virus” warning that has exploded in popularity recently:
PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE TO YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CONTACTS! In the coming days, you should be aware@: Do not open any message with an attachment called: Invitation FACEBOOK, regardless of who sent it. It’s virus that opens an Olympic torch that burns the hard disc C of your computer. Virus will be received from someone in your address book .. If you receive mail called: Inviitation FACEBOOK, though sent by a friend, DO NOT OPEN IT and DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY
This warning is completely false. There is no such threat. This hoax is based on a similar email hoax that started years ago.
Always take a moment to verify rumors and speculation – Don’t blindly copy and paste warnings just because a Facebook friend asks you to do so. People usually mean well, but it helps no one to willingly take part in viral Facebook hoaxes. If you see this on friend’s Wall, then let them know it isn’t true.
