whatever you do dont click the links! It's a very bad spam with links to website which can mess up your computer

"Have you been receiving emails supposedly from CNN, showing Top 10 news and videos? Remember signing up for it? No? You are not alone.

More than a thousand hacked Web sites are serving up fake Flash Player software to users duped into clicking on links in mail that's part of a massive spam attack masquerading as CNN.com news notifications, security researchers said Wednesday."

Well it will be worth running an antivirus/antispyware check on your machine if you can just to make sure

I have had lots but thankfully not opened them. I must say spam is bad at the moment, the amount getting in my in box is ridiculous. Unless i know were it has come from i don't open it.

you should be fine, just dont click on any of the links and if you can, just delete them as soon as you spot them
