Let's watch TV virus

CATEGORY: Hoax virus alerts

A typical variation on the original Good Times hoax virus alert, and practically a clone of the Wobbler hoax virus alert (see related links). It claims your computer will suffer a horrible death if you receive an email with "Lets watch TV" in the subject line.

Like the Wobbler hoax, this one urges you to forward it to others because "not many people know about it." Also like the Wobbler hoax, it claims IBM and AOL declared the threat more dangerous and more powerful than Melissa.
