E Christmas card
« on: December 19, 2009, 01:30:38 pm »
I've had a call from a friend who's computer is completely shot to hell. It happened after clicking on an e-card sent by a another friend. Be very careful of opening these cards. Most people are sensible enough not to open an attachment sent by an unknown source, but these cards can be used to piggy back malware. I'd recommend not opening them even if you know who they are from.

Thanks for the warning, John. There are many dodgy links being circulated at this time of the year. My rule is not to click on anything included in an e-mail, even if I know the person.
