Abstract

Computer viruses have become an important consideration in computer information management, especially for microcomputers. Unfortunately, this dangerous area is confusing with a frustrating lack of understandable information for many computer literate users. It is difficult to separate fact from fiction when there are too many spurious sources of information. This research surveyed a broad spectrum of computer trade and academic publications as well as USENET news groups to categorize the virus folklore into seven general categories. Analysis of the folklore categories includes examples and illustrations followed by logical and factual clarification. Given this analysis, conclusions are presented for helping the information manager deal effectively in the context of the computer virus folklore
