    >> There is a computer virus that is being sent across the
    Internet.
    >> If you receive an e-mail message with the subject line "Good
    Times",
    >> DO NOT read the message, DELETE it immediately. Please read
    the
    >> messages below.
    >> Some miscreant is sending e-mail under the subject title "good
    times"
    >> nation-wide.
    >> If you get anything like this, DON'T DOWN LOAD THE FILE! It
    has a
    >> virus that rewrites your hard drive, obliterating anything on
    it.
    >> Please be careful and forward this mail to anyone you care
    about--I
    >> have. WARNING!!!!!!!!!: INTERNET VIRUS
    >>
    >> The FCC released a warning last Wednesday concerning a matter
    of
    >> major importance to any regular user of the InterNet.
    Apparently, a
    >> new computer virus has been engineered by a user of America
    Online
    >> that is unparalleled in its destructive capability. Other, more
    >> well-known viruses such as Stoned, Airwolf, and Michaelangelo
    pale in
    >> comparison to the prospects of this newest creation by a warped
    >> mentality. What makes this virus so terrifying, said the FCC,
    is the
    >> fact that no program needs to be exchanged for a new computer
    to be
    >> infected. It can be spread through the existing e-mail systems
    of the
    >> InterNet. Once a computer is infected, one of several things
    can
    >> happen. If the computer contains a hard drive, that will most
    likely
    >> be destroyed. If the program is not stopped, the computer's
    >> processor will be placed in an nth-complexity infinite binary
    loop -
    >> which can severely damage the processor if left running that
    way too
    >> long. Unfortunately, most novice computer users will not
    realize
    >> what is happening until it is far too late. Luckily, there is
    one
    >> sure means of detecting what is now known as the
    >> "Good Times" virus. It always travels to new computers the same
    way
    >> in a text e-mail message with the subject line reading simply
    "Good
    >> Times". Avoiding infection is easy once the file has been
    received
    >> in not reading it. The act of loading the file into the mail
    >> server's ASCII buffer causes the "Good Times" mainline program
    to
    >> initialize and execute. The program is highly intelligent -
    it
    >> will send copies of itself to everyone whose e-mail
    >> address is contained in a received-mail file or a sent- mail
    file,
    >> if it can
    >> find one. It will then proceed to trash the computer it is
    running
    >> on. The bottom line here is - if you receive a file with the
    subject
    >> line "Good Times", delete it immediately! Do not read it!
    >> Rest assured that whoever's name was on the "From:" line was
    surely
    >> struck by the virus. Warn your friends and local system users
    of
    >> this newest threat to the InterNet! It could save them a lot of
    time
    >> and money.
