Did you hear this?

I just received this e-mail. I did go to snopes.com and it is true. please be careful.

There is a new virus entitled "Obama Acceptance Speech", "Amazing Speech by Obama" or it may have various subject lines. Please DO NOT open it! This particular virus steals all passwords and user IDs.

The emails may appear to be from legitimate news sources, and will try to lure you into clicking on a link that will lead you to a malicious website, or opening an infected video clip or attachment.

Please click on the link for more information: http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/obamaspeech.asp. If you do not feel comfortable clicking on the link, simply go to snopes.com and enter "Obama Acceptance Speech" in the search engine for more information.

  • This was an importnt message. There are too many people who aren't aware of the possibility of a virus in e-mails and too many have their identities stolen. Please don't bash this poster-she is doing us a favor by telling us. You can never be too careful on the Internet.

  • Well, ny.chica..There will be some hater out there who opens it and then gets affected by the virus. Then they can blame Obama for it.
