I feel the necessity to tell my friends there is no such thing as GRAVITY !!!!!

THE EARTH SIMPLY SUCKS!!!

TUT OUT! :roll: Heads up!!! "OBL Captured" or "OBL Hanged" emails carry VIRUSES!!!!

Folks - With the advent of the Asian Earthquakes, these Virus emails are circulating again.
THIS IS TRUE and CONFIRMED BY www.SNOPES.COM.

Emails with pictures of Osama Bin-Laden hanged are being sent - and the moment that you open these emails your computer may crash!

This e-mail is being distributed through countries around the globe, but mainly in the US and Israel.

If you get an email along the lines of "Osama bin Laden Captured" or "Osama Hanged" DO NOT open the attachment.

Origins: There are few headlines that would grab the attention of more computer users around the world than "Osama bin Laden Captured," and that's exactly what the author of this lure was counting on to snare unsuspecting victims who use Microsoft platforms.

"Osama bin Laden Captured" isn't a virus in itself; it's the text of a message that includes a link to a file called EXPLOIT.EXE. When a message recipient clicks on this link to view what he thinks are pictures of Osama bin Laden's capture, he/she can end up downloading an executable Trojan known as Backdoor-AZU, BKDR_LARSLP.A, Download.Trojan, TrojanProxy.Win32.Small.b,or Win32.Slarp.

Clicking the embedded link in the "Osama bin Laden Captured" message auto-executes a file called "EXPLOIT.EXE," which exploits a known security hole to download the Trojan. According to McAfee Security:

The Trojan opens a random port on the victim's machine. It sends the Port information to a webpage at IP address 66.139.77.145. The Trojan listens on the open port for instructions and redirects traffic to other IP addresses. Spammers and hackers can take advantage of compromised systems by using the infected computer as a middleman, allowing them to pass information through it and remain anonymous.
