    I know the majority of you won't fall for this but there is a virus going around saying it's pictures of Osama bin Laden's dead body. Don't open it, just dump it in the trash. I think this only affects PC's not phones or Macs.

    I heard about that also. A friend of mine, went to the link anyway. He said; he had problems opening the site and the only pic he got was that one that was a PhotoShop. He used his phone, don't know if he got infected.

    No, this is a windows virus there is no way it will affect the phone, but it might be possible to transfer it to your pc if you open it and mount your phone.

    Who opens random messages to begin with!? Unless you are really that gullible then maybe getting a virus will enlighten you on the perfect, peace loving world that is...The INTERNET!
