Yes, viruses do exist that target AOL users, but the company AOL (now AOL-TW) never issues virus warnings.

Any warning that states something along the lines of "AOL has said..." or "Microsoft warns..." or "IBM has stated..." are very likely hoaxes - using brand names that newbies will recognize in order to convince them.

Again, these hoaxes are dangerous, and use up network resources unnecessarily. Please think carefully before forwarding such warnings to those you know.
