Re: Fwd: virus warning

[message about Good Times and PKZIP300 deleted for brevity]

Good Gentles,

The Good Times virus is a hoax. This one has been going around the
internet for about five years now. Please ignore it. The only way
you can get a virus from email is in an attachment, and that has
to be an infected file you have to run. Email by itself can not pass
on a virus.

The PKZIP300 virus is, however, a real virus, and this one too has
been around for a number of years (though not as long as Good Times).
The folks who write the PKZIP software posted something a long time
ago about this virus. Do watch out for it, but I don't think you're
likely to run into anywhere.
