PC Magazine: Phony e-card site serves up malware

A quick note before lunch…  per PCMAG today… there are a number of phony electronic cards being circulated this Valentine’s day…

Sunbelt Software is reporting a virulent and convincing fake greeting card site and associated malware.

Like most malware these days, it is delivered through a rogue web site. The link to the site is in an e-mail spammed out to victims as a greeting card. When you click the link you are told you need to update your Flash player to view the card.

See American Greetings Phony Site Serves Malware With A Smile – Security Watch for more details, and don’t open suspicious emails from someone you don’t know.  Also see Pleasure, pain for investors on love’s day (Chicago Tribune).
