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.

Everyone knows computers had not yet been invented in 1996, since Facebook had not created them yet!

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:
