*** New virus can be detected A new virus is expected to hit Internet users' computers on Aug. 22 and Sept. 22, infecting hard drives and causing data loss. However, the "Hare Virus" -- named for an attribution to Hare Krishna found in it -- is no Michelangelo, an earlier virus that attacked users' systems. Theoretically, the virus lies dormant on a user's computer until its detonation dates. Any user who is unlucky enough to have acquired the virus and has not detected it, may have their hard drive wiped out. Some experts doubt that the virus will be widely destructive because it may have trouble propagating. Several virus detection programs, including ones by McAfee, Symantec and Stiller, can eliminate the virus.
