New Year Themed Malware Expanded

As the New Year approaches, the malware writers have expanded their reach to include additional greeting expressions. F-Secure reported that the New Year theme postcards currently include expressions such as,
  • "Fun Filled New Year"
  • "May Your Dreams Come True!"
  • "Sparkling Happiness And Good Times!"
  • "Sender Happy 2007!"
The attachment name is "greeting card.exe", "Greeting Postcard.exe"

Unless you know the sender, do not open attachments. Even then, if you are not expecting an attachment, check with the sender first.

Have a Safe New Year!
