Virus Hoax

The virus mentioned was originally called the "Good Times" virus
supposedly spread via AOL transmissions. The virus supposedly is
contained in e-mail and activates when downloaded or opened.

This is a hoax and has been confirmed as such by MERCT (Motorola
Emergency Response Computer Team).

It is also important to note that virus programs and trojan horse
programs require some form of executable file to operate; e-mail contains
no such executables.

If you see this message on other systems please help stop it by
forwarding these facts.
