Apparently the mere fact of a file being dated 1996 makes a typical computer user in 2017 think they must be infected by a virus.
This is enough to draw dismal conclusions about almost everything involving computers. I'll spare you my spelling them all out.

I might not be a typical computer user, but still had to check if I have those infected files. I found this from my home directory:
timppa@haya:~$ LANG=en ls -l ~/home-eka/timppa/work/koululta/jis -rw-r--r-- 1 timppa timppa 5168 Jan 11 1991 /home/timppa/home-eka/timppa/work/koululta/jis
It was not a virus, it was a saved post from a newsgroup:
