Fw: VIRUS WARNING ! this is for real guys from a friend at Telecom Ireland Admin.

This virus warning (and others like it) are a hoax, folks.  Email cannot do
what this warning describes.  The short of it:  email messages are not
executed and cannot harm your system.  Attachments and macros that you
execute as part of an email *might*, but you deserve what you get if you
execute a program you receive anonymously.

Cha, please tell the guys at Telecom Ireland to read the CERT advisories.  I
can understand the "better safe than sorry" point of view, but the real
virus here is the email message that keeps getting forwarded.  It's been
going around for years.  Just say no.
