Ooh, this new one’s extremely clever. It’s an email, with an attachment, and when you run it, it sends copies of itself to everyone. I wonder where they came up with that one.
Actually, the Goner virus serves a small purpose in the office environment. If you got this, and you clicked it, now you know you’re stupid. If there was doubt before, your head must be cleared of all uncertainty today. Everybody in your address book knows you’re an idiot, so you might as well take this hint and maybe write it down before you forget it.
You know, just like “don’t run attachments” escaped the steel trap of your memory.
