Myths of the Net

Send Article to a Friend

Myths of the Net -- Ken Lager <klager@pipeline.com> points us to a good resource for debunking stories like the AOL 4.0 rumor we lambasted last issue:

I have found that the best way to deal with mail warning me of a deadly computer virus is to fire up my Web browser and head on over to the Computer Virus Myths page at Rob Rosenberger's non-profit Web site. It always has the latest information to debunk all of these urban legends. Usually, I write up a reply to the sender and everyone who the message was sent to, including the information from the site as well as the address. That way, I won't have to worry about getting that same message again from mutual friends who are looking out for me.
