Anonymous E-Cards

It seems that (rather predictably) hackers are exploiting valentines day to send out fake anonymous e-cards with suitably “romantic” subjects to get people to click on the link in the email to open the card.

Instead of course, they’re clicking on a link to install some piece of spyware or a virus.

Remember on this day renowned for receiving anonymous expressions of romance, treat any email the same as you would any other day – don’t click that link – you don’t know what it’s going to do.

Also, as a responsible computer user, you shouldn’t be encouraging people to open anonymous emails by sending e-cards on valentines.
