Beware of that Greeting Card-It could be a trojan

Be careful before opening emailed greeting cards. If you receive a a custom greeting e-card it might not be from a friend like the e-mail subject line says.
Today I received an email that claims to be a greeting card notification from regards.com. The link in the email points to a malicious website hosting a trojan.


The email read: “You’ve just received a custom greeting card from a friend

Hello, One of your friends has just created a custom greeting card for you at REGARDS.COM, the Internet’s most popular greeting card service.

Of course the ecard, is not really from regards.com and it wasn’t sent from a friend.

Advice: Delete any e-card from someone you don’t know. If you have received an e-mail similar to this, please file a complaint at http://www.ic3.gov.
