Virus Warning

I just received the following e-mail. In the message I received the words “click here” is a link. But I noticed that the link is to an FTP site, and not a web page. It was going to download an “.exe” file. That means a program.

You have received a postcard !
Hello friend !
You have just received a postcard from someone who cares about you!
This is a part of the message:
“Hy there! It has been a long time since I haven´t heared about you!
I´ve just found out about this service from Claire, a friend of mine who also told me that…”
If you´d like to see the rest of the message click here to receive your animated postcard!

If you receive something like this DO NOT CLICK! It will run a program on your computer.

  1. My Hotmail accounts have been full of that, but it looked too bogus — almost everyone I know is literate, so crappy spelling is a tipoff.

  2. Thanks for the warning Dave! We’ve just had a very effective anti-virus system installed on our computer and that would hopefully put this email into the ‘fraudulent’ mail folder but then one never knows ..
