Since 1988, computer virus hoaxes have been circulating the Internet. Form this time on virus hoaxes have flooded the Net. With thousands of viruses worldwide, virus paranoia in the community has risen to an extremely high level. It is this paranoia that fuels these false warnings. A good example of this behaviour is the "Good Times" virus hoax which started in 1994 and is still circulating the Internet today. Instead of spreading from one computer to another by itself, good times relies on people to pass it along!
