VIRUS ALERT:  FOR ALL INTERNET USERS.

   Subject:  Internet Virus

The following message was sent to me late last night via the InterNet. 
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
----------------
There is a new 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.

Someone 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 you hard drive, obliterating anything on it.  Please be 
careful
and forward this mail to anyone you care about.

Apparently , a new computer virus has been engineered by a user of 
America Online that is unparalled in it's 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.

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 you friends and local system users of this newest threat to the 
InterNet.  It could save them a lot of time and money.

----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
----------------
This was an abbreviated version of what was sent to me.  If you would 
like additional information as to what would happen if "Good Times" was 
downloaded, please reply back.

Please pass this on.

Thanks,

Ryan Wheat
