Today I’ve seen a couple of instances virus turning up as a spam mail. It’s disguised as ‘Greeting Card.exe’, ‘Flash Postcard.exe’ or similar and most importantly is not being detected by the latest version of AVG. I have emailed the executable off to the vendors to get it added.
In the meantime, normal advice follows – don’t open any attachments from someone that you don’t 120% trust. Do not open any attachments that have any kind of dodgy looking file extension like .exe. In short don’t open anything unless you are completely sure that you know what it is and even then think twice!
