Spammers attack Internet

Date: July 25, 2007

If you have e-mail, then you've probably received a greeting card in your in-box within the last month. Don't open it!

Internet spammers have launched an attack on in-boxes by concealing a computer virus in an online greeting card.

If it's opened, there's a link to a Web site that uploads a virus to your computer.

This latest threat to your computer serves as a reminder to be cautious before you open any e-mail message. Make sure you have the latest spam and virus filters on your computer to reduce your risk of falling victim to a scheme like the greeting card message.
