Hackers turn to fake greeting cards

#120 According to Internet security vendor SurfControl PLC, attackers are increasingly using fake e-mail greeting cards as a way of getting malicious software installed on computers.

Now here is something that will surprise you (it surprised me) - the amount of malicious e-mail being disguised as e-mail greeting cards is up about 90% from last year and now makes up more than half of all malicious e-mail being sent!

Boy that came out of nowhere now didnt it? Its a good thing Christmas and the festive season are not around the corner...
