Received Email titled "Virus Coming"

Jump to solution

This email suggest that a POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK will (I their words) "burns the whole hard disc C of your computer" if opened. I find this hard to believe. Any reports of such a virus?

Thanks,

It's a hoax that's been circulating for years http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_postcard_virus.htm

However, note the remark there that email card infections do exist.

Be alert, keep Windows and all software totally up to date, surf wisely .. in other words stay safe.
