Heads up!
This just in:

A new virus is spreading by email that masquerades
as a chance to vote for peace, not war.

Please do not fall for this virus and attempt to vote
for peace.

Here's a description of the virus:

"Vote" arrives in an in-box with the subject line
"Peace between America and Islam." The body text
of the e-mail reads "Hi. Is it a war against America
or Islam? Let's vote to live in peace." Included in the
e-mail is an attached document called WTC.exe.
When the attachment is double-clicked,
the computer is infected.

Here's a link to a more detailed report on the virus:

All the best,
Dick
