>>> 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 title "Good Times" nation wide, if you get anything
>>like this,
>>DON'T DOWNLOAD 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.
>>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
>>ON LINE 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

>>Unfortunately, most novice computer users will not realize what

>>means of detecting what is now known as the "Good Times" virus.
>>It always travels to new computers the same way in a text
>>email message with the subject line reading "Good Times".
>>Avoiding infection is easy once the file has been received- 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 receive-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'sname was on the "From" line was surely struck by the
>>Warn your friends and local system users of this newest threat
>>to the Internet\ It could save them a lot of time and money.
