A new VIRUS is being spread via email.

It is in the form of a Greetings card and a Post card, and invites you to view your greeting.

DO NOT OPEN NOR CLICK ON THE INVITE. DELETE IMMEDIATELY.[/SIZE]

Norton and McAfee anti-virus software do not have a solution yet.

IF YOU DO NOT RECOGNISE ANY EMAIL IN YOUR IN-BOX, DELETE.

DO NOT OPEN CIRCULAR EMAILS. THE REPLY TO ALL TYPE

Hi Steve,
Thanks a lot for that, as you know I"m quite a novice yet on a Computer so a Warning like that is good to know.
As you may have noticed, Paxo was on Newsnight last night:kissu: so my Kidnap Plan has not yet come to fruition>:D Will keep at it though.
Happy Hunting
Luv Mo xx

Need to be a little careful here. Have a look at the Snopes Urban Legend site: http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/postcard.asp

There is clearly a greetings card virus wandering around, but it is not new, and Norton, MacAfee, Zone Alarm and the rest have it covered.

In particular be aware of the round-robin email that talks about "the most dangerous virus ever" quoting (wrongly) CNN and USA Today. It normally starts up again just before Valentine's Day and Christmas!

Incidentally, it is always worth looking at www.snopes.com when you get a round-robin emails about anything.
