AFCERT advisory, 12 Feb 97
AFCERT The U.S. Air Force suffered its own rash of computer virus hoaxes as email grew popular. Following in U.S. DoE CIAC's footsteps (see below), their own computer emergency response team issued an alert on 12 February 1997 regarding virus hoaxes. And they highlighted Vmyths (back then known as the Computer Virus Myths home page). For many months afterward, AFCERT's website linked to us right on their front page -- a truly rare honor for a non-military website.
