Computer Specialists * *
On May 4, a virus (worm) called ILOVEYOU propagated all over the world, causing needless grief and aggrevation. The National Park Service was affected in many parts of the country. It now appears that there are *NEW* variants of the May 4 virus which are in circulation. The frightening thing is that the new variants are sneaky - you could easily believe any of them to be a valid message.
