Frog screensaver download

  mahalo 19:19 17 Oct 2005

A friend has sent me an email which has been forwarded to him, who themselves had it forwarded etc., "Do not download this frog screensaver, it will crash your computer and get your password etc", and Microsoft has warned everyone aboutit. Can this be genuine ?, I would not want the screensaver, but the email contained many email addresses, I wondered if this is a way of getting yours, seeing as it has been opened.
What do you folks think ?

but I opened it as it was from a friend, normally I would not open an email that I did not know the sender, but I will now delete it.
Thank you.
