Default Real Computer Virus/Worm

http://securityresponse.symantec.com...reet.worm.html
A new type of email threat is making the rounds…

If you receive an email with the following form:

Subject:

Recipient name you have an E-Card from Sender name

Body:

Greetings!

Sender name has sent you an E-Card - a virtual postcard from FriendGreetings.com.
You can pick up your E-Card at the FriendGreetings.com by clicking on the link below.

A url at www.friendgreetings.com is then displayed

Message:
----------------------------------------------------------
Recipient name
I sent you a greeting card. Please pick it up.
Sender name
----------------------------------------------------------
delete it. If you were to follow the link, you would be prompted to
install a piece of software. You would first see an install alert: and then a license agreement:
If you say "YES" to both steps, you will have given
permission to send junk mail to everyone in your Contacts list!!!!

PLEASE DELETE ANY EMAIL THAT RESEMBLES THE ABOVE-MENTIONED FORM.

More details about this email issue may be found at these sites:
