VIRUS ALERT!!!

VERY URGENT !!! http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/obamaspeech.asp


Checked on snopes.com. IT'S REAL

THERE IS AN EMAIL WITH SUBJECT LINE OBAMA ACCEPTANCE SPEECH FLOATING AROUND WITH A TROJAN HORSE ATTACHMENT. DO NOT OPEN FOR ANY REASON!!! DELETE IMMEDIATELY. THE TROJAN STEALS ALL PASSWORDS AND USER IDS!!!

According to Snopes it's real but Snopes has been wrong before.

I checked it out on Snopes too. The warning appears to be legit, but I haven't heard of anyone receiving the infected e-mail itself.
