If you get this as an email attachment it's a virus.
Do not open the .exe file, it's doing the rounds at the moment on email.

I received something similar titled: Russian missle shot down Chinese satellite from an unknown and suspect source. note the misspelling. best avoid it too.

Interesting, and thanks for the warning.
I too had an e-mail today from one Issa Kamara offering to split £30 million with me; no viruses I think but a waste of time given the length of the letter.

The perpetrator of this e-mail couldn't even get the facts right - the Chinese brought down one of their own older satellites.
