Valentine's Day e-card.....

Postby tigereye » Wed Feb 13, 2008 4:07 pm

The FBI warns for virus!
If you unexpectedly receive a Valentine's Day e-card, be careful !
Valentine's Day e-greetings from a stranger could deliver a
destructive "Trojan horse" that hijacks computers.
The bogus email directs the recipient to click on a link to retrieve an electronic Valentine's Day card.
If the user falls for the ruse, malware will infect their computer or the device they used to connect to the Internet,
and make it become part of a Storm Worm botnet.
A botnet is a network of computers that, unbeknownst to their users, forward transmissions, such as spam, viruses
and malware, to other computers linked to the Internet.
So do not open Valentine's greetings from unknown senders.
