Congratulations on Facts and Fables About Computer Viruses (JofA, May98, page 39). It was one of the more intelligent discussions of computer viruses I have seen. The author correctly says the risk of virus infection is not as severe as some would believe. His tips and suggestions are excellent recommendations; all computer users who are concerned about viruses should use them.
