Angry VIRUS Warning!!!

I just received an email from "Hallmark". It looked totally legit, but I was suspicious because it said I had "received a post card from a friend" but didn't say what "friend" or even have the "friends" email. So, I had my scanner check the attachment and sure enough it told me there was a VIRUS in the attachment. Thankfully I didn't open it!

BEWARE of emails from - "[email protected]" <[email protected]>

I am running all my scanners and Microsoft's Malicious Software remover just to be safe. Damn these people, ALL of them! ARGH

And that is why I don't ever open crap like that. If someone wants to send me a card, they can do it through snail mail lol.

I had heard about this a couple of months back as well.

In fact I have heard not to open any cards or really anything unless it give you who it is from.

I sent my uncle an attachment I received from a friend the other day and it was fine on my puter but a virus attached itself apparently on outgoing and it shut his computer down

Thankfully I didn't get infected because I didn't open it and had the mind to scan the attachment.

I get cards all the time from family/friends, but this one looked different because every card I get always has WHO its from, at least the name or the email addy.

People that do this crap really need to be tied behind a car by their toes and dragged through broken glass and thorn bushes!!!!! ARGH
