Jumping spider
The jumping spider family (Salticidae) contains more than 500 described genera and over 5,000 species, making it the largest family of spiders with about 13% of all species (Peng et al., 2002). Jumping spiders have good vision and use it for hunting and navigating. They are capable of jumping from place to place, secured by a silk tether. Both their book lungs and the tracheal system are well-developed, as they depend on both systems (bimodal breathing).

Thanks for sharing this and proving this that it is actually a hoax. Internet has been a good friend but when it comes to spreading rumors, it is doing a great job too. Glad to know there are people out there that are willing to spend time on such matter to investigate whether it is true or it is just a hoax. We have been receiving too much of these emails. Hopefully there would be a way to stop this nonsense.
