/* ---------- "Internet Virus Hoaxes" ---------- */
IGC Support has been receiving messages from members concerned
about having received the following viruses in with their e-mail
messages:

Irina
Good Times
Deeyenda
PKZ300

These are all a hoax. They are not real computer viruses. If you
receive a message about any of these, the best thing you can do is to
ignore it and not send the message to anyone else.

Details are posted in the newsgroup called 'micro' in a topic
posted today called "Internet Virus Hoaxes".

An excellent resource for keeping current about real and fake viruses
is on the Dept. of Energy Computer Incident Advisory Capability Web
page at this address:

http://ciac.llnl.gov/ciac/CIACVirusDatabase.html

The Dr. Soloman Virus Central World Wide Web page is also
very good which is at this address:

http://www.drsolomon.com/vircen/

Other sources are included in the topic posted in the 'micro'
newsgroup.
