Voici un extrait du journal electronique TidBits:


**Relax, It's Still A Hoax** -- Rumors are circulating once again
  about a virus called "Good Times" being sent as an email message
  that will erase your hard disk if you read it. So, we repeat:
  these warnings are a hoax; further, there are no known viruses
  that can be spread simply by reading an email message, since
  actual code must be executed for a virus to spread. Please see
  TidBITS-256_ for a discussion of the original rumors. [GD]
