For the second time in eight months, a computer “virus” has been found in programs at Seattle software manufacturer Aldus Corp., the company said. The company said that despite precautions taken after a virus was discovered in its FreeHand drawing program last March, a new virus has turned up in an updated version of FreeHand. Aldus spokeswoman Laury Bryant said no programs available for sale to the public were infected by the latest virus. Viruses are small computer programs, created by programmers as jokes or acts of vandalism, which secretly attach themselves to other programs.
