Malware New Year Greeting Emails
Monday, December 31, 2007
The barrage of bogus greeting card emails that have been hitting inboxes for months has now shifted its theme from Christmas to New Year.
The Happy New Year emails include links that supposedly leads to such items as a "greeting card" or a "2008 song". However, those who click on the link will be taken to a website that tries to entice visitors into downloading a malicious .exe file.
There have already been several different versions of these malware messages and more are likely to follow. Be very cautious of any Happy New Year messages that claim to contain links to greeting cards, songs, or other New Year orientated material
