Virus in Email
« on: December 06, 2011, 05:40:07 PM »

If anybody receives an email from "Hallmark" do not open it, I have been told it contains a virus.

This one has been going the rounds and - I think - has been covered on this Forum before.

See http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/postcard.asp

My understanding is that email cannot carry a vrus; only an attachment.

As far as I know, Barry's right.
Never open attachments unless you know who it's from and are expecting it!
I used to send e-cards to people 'till I realised that I would never open them myself....didn't seem much point after that.
