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:

        You'd better delete it quickly.  After that, send a card to
Craig Sherhold so he can break the words record, then add your name to
the bottom of the list because it's been around the world one more
time, then forward this message to at least 10 of your friends before
your sex life falls apart.

        The "Good Times virus" is not a virus, it is a chain letter
ment to clog the mail systems of the internet, and this week it seems
like it is doing a very good job.  Please delete it, and do not
forward it, and inform your users that it is a hoax.
