It is.


Trolls never die - they just smell like they have.

Nice of you.

For future reference:-
* those style of alerts are often a malware distribution method
* best to check before forwarding them - especially the sources quoted
within the scare alert itself
* don't post other people's email addresses on the list without asking
them if they want spam unlimited ;-) (if you ask the list maintainers
nicely they may delete it - but it will already have been copied by
other sites).
* pretty much anything on the intertubes in ALLCAPS belongs in the big
round file :-)

Your hard drive zero sector is still safe ;-)

Kind regards
