Naked Wife? Just say "No".

Heads up peeps, yet another new virus with a spiffy name. In case anyone doesn’t already know, don’t open .exe files if you don’t know the sender.

Also, watch out for the Good Times Virus:

Goodtimes will re-write your hard drive.

Not only that, it will scramble any disks that are even close to your computer. It will recalibrate your refrigerator’s coolness setting so all your ice cream goes melty. It will demagnetize the strips on all your credit cards, screw up the tracking on your television and use subspace field harmonics to scratch any CDs you try to play.

It will give your ex-girl/boyfriend your new phone number. It will mix Kool-aid into your fishtank. It will drink all your beer and leave dirty socks on the coffee table when company comes over. It will put a dead kitten in the back pocket of your good suit pants and hide your car keys when you are late for work.

Goodtimes will make you fall in love with a penguin. It will give you nightmares about circus midgets. It will pour sugar in your gas tank and shave off both your eyebrows while dating your girl/boyfriend behind your back and billing the dinner and hotel room to your Discover card.

It will seduce your grandmother. It does not matter if she is dead, such is the power of Goodtimes, it reaches out beyond the grave to sully those things we hold most dear.

It moves your car randomly around parking lots so you can’t find it. It will kick your dog. It will leave libidinous messages on your boss’s voice mail in your voice! It is insidious and subtle. It is dangerous and terrifying to behold. It is also a rather interesting shade of mauve.

Goodtimes will give you Dutch Elm disease. It will leave the toilet seat up. It will make a batch of Methamphetamine in your bathtub and then leave bacon cooking on the stove while it goes out to chase gradeschoolers with your new snowblower.

Whatever you do, DO NOT OPEN GOODTIMES.VBS!!!

Um, okay I did a search on Snopes. Naked wife is listed on the same virus page as GoodTimes. I see the reference. However, according to the site Snopes uses as it’s reference, naked wife is real.

But feel free to check the link youself

It’s real, just downloaded the scan update:

IT’s a Trojan that will erase .dll’s, .exe’s, etc. from the HDD.

Thanks for the instruction, TM. I wouldn’t know what to do with a Naked Wife…:frowning:

So far, I haven’t seen any Naked Wifes at my office. Maybe I will have better luck at home.

It’s real. It’s been here in my office, but our email server strips the virus before it delivers the message, so no harm, no foul.

Trouble, your email server automatically strips naked wives when they enter your office? That’s one partying place of business you’ve got there.
