We panic whenever we get an e-mail warning about a virus. However, more often than not it could be a hoax. Roopinder Singh details ways of detecting such hoaxes.
A FEW days ago, I got a message in my e-mail box—a warning regarding a virus, sent by a well-meaning friend. It read: "There is a virus out now being sent to people via email...it is called the A.I.D.S. VIRUS. It will destroy your memory, sound card and speakers, hard drive and it will infect your mouse or pointing device…as well as your keyboards making what you type not able to register on the screen.
