Malicious Christmas eCards

If you receive an eCard (email card) from someone you don’t know it might be from someone with malicious intents. Especially if it has the following:

  • The subject is similar to: This is my one-off Xmase-card for you ^_^ Very nice
  • The body of the email contains a link to: http://uklotttery.us/?id=ecard
  • The body of the email contains the text: This is my one-off Xmase-card for you ^_^ Very nice
  • And it has the words: no worm , no virus

If you find something similar to the above just delete it. It’s sent as spam and the link will try to install a virus.

No doubt there’ll be many attempts this festive season to play on people’s trust so as always be wary of things like this.
