A hoax is a term that describes anything that is not real. For example, many hoax e-mails are distributed to cause false fears. For example, the "Bad Times" virus claimed to be a virus capable of erasing everything on your computer hard drive as well as any disks or other magnetic media around your computer. Today, most hoaxes are spread though chain mails.
