Beware Easter 3D E-Cards

Symantec’s MessageLabs Intelligence has intercepted Easter ‘e-card’ spam emails offering a ‘2010 Easter 3D e-Card,'” a representative for Symantec tells WebProNews. “Spam authors are attempting to use the recent surge of interest in 3D media to increase the likelihood of people falling for their scam.  The links that are supposed to allow the recipient to see the fabulous 3D card in reality link to a malicious executable file.  Anyone who runs it hoping to see their card will be disappointed, as all they will get is an infected computer.”
