I received an e-mail from a collegue regarding a new virus propogated
by e-mail called the "Good Times" virus.  The e-mail was not very specific
as to the how the virus does its damage or what security holes it exploits
to do its thing.  Has anybody else heard of it and have any additional
information?  Here is a excerpt from the e-mail I received:

Luckily, there is one sure means of detecting what is now known as the "good
times" virus.  It always travels to new computers the same way in a text e-
mail message with the subject line reading simply "Good Times."

Avoiding infection is easy once the file has been recieved--not reading it.
The act of loading the file into the mail servers's ASCII buffer causes the
"Good Times" mainline program to initialize and execute.  The program is
highly intelligent-it will send copies of itself to everyone whose e-mail
address is contained in a received-mail file or sent-mail file.  If it can
find one.  It will then proceed to trash the computer it is running on.
