A warning! Is it? or another one of those.

I have had to-two mails from my circle- passing the same identical warning - I will not repro., it but in essence it reports that BT have issued a warning that a scam with the title Invitation and purporting to be associated with the forth coming Olympics comes with an attachment - opening the attachment causes everything dire.
Any one else seen this yet?

I received the same 'warning' three days ago and gave it Gandalf's treatment immediately. Have just now mailed the Sophos page to the contact I received it from.

Thank you both
I guessed it would be as my heading suggested -
I have passed the Sophos URL back along the line.

FE, my apologies for posting the full text.

Thank you, but no apology necessary - it's just that some people get jumpy when they see these hoaxes, and I think it's better we don't go looking for trouble. It's best to just give an indication of the subject matter,mention that it's a hoax, and leave it at that.
