Don’t Open That E-card!


The Chronicle has a report on a recent email threat that is suckering users into clicking a virus that comes disguised as an e-card.

In most cases, the subject line informs recipients that they’ve received a greeting card or a postcard from a “friend,” “family member,” “worshipper,” “school-mate” or “neighbour.” When the e-mail is opened, there’s a link to a Web site that uploads viruses to the recipient’s computer.

Please use common sense when opening email attachments and when in doubt, don’t click.


  1. But I get so few cards from “worshippers.”

    Stupid hackers, taking all the fun out of it. 😉
