AVERT HOAX Notice!!

McAfee AVERT Labs would like to inform you of an email HOAX.

This hoax has been forwarded due to misinformation related to an Internet worm named VBS/Timofonica. Although the script did send notice messages to phone users on a specific subscription service, the information below is completely unrelated.

We are advising users who receive the email to delete it and DO NOT pass it on as this is how an email HOAX propagates.

Below is the actual text from the message that may be received via email.

Again, if you receive this email delete it and DO NOT pass it on.
