False Greetings

Another dangerous email to report. This one masquerades as an online greetings card:

Greeting

The link actually downloads a harmful executable file from a server in Romania. It contains a trojan which creates secret backdoor entry to your system, downloads more harmful software and gives the author remote virtual control over your PC. They can use this to spy on your activities or make you an unwitting participant in illegal activities.

  • Install decent anti-virus software and keep it up date
  • Never respond to unsolicitied emails, no matter how authentic they look
