    This is an old Hoax Micky ... I'll see if I can find a bit more info

    Edit: here you go: http://www.sophos.com/security/hoaxes/olympic.html

    Dave

    Many virus hoaxes:

    falsely claim to describe an extremely dangerous virus
    use pseudo-technical language to make impressive-sounding (but impossible) claims
    falsely claim that the report was issued or confirmed by a well-known company
    ask you to forward it to all your friends and colleagues
    As usual, you are urged not to pass on warnings of this kind, as the continued re-forwarding of these hoaxes simply wastes time and email bandwidth.

    It is possible that you may receive a hoax via email with a file attached. Obviously, such file attachments should be treated with caution as they may be virus infected. Sophos recommends deleting virus hoax emails, whether they contain file attachments or not.

    No worries It's usually a good idea to stick it in google when stuff like this arrives or a virus vendor's (such as Sophos) knowledge base search engine.
