Got An E-Card?

Of late, I have been getting a lot of e-card from don't know who the hell those fella are. Mind you, those are not the real e-card that you used to send to your friends. In the content of the mail, it give an URL for you to click. But I have never click any of those, as I heard from some sources that, upon clicking on the link, your pc will be infected with unknown sickness (virus lah).


An anti virus company said, hackers has manipulated many pcs out there, which are not being protected by anti virus & patches to send out this kind of e-mails. These pcs controlled by hackers are knowned as 'zombies'. Having said that, is your pc a zombi too? Is it protected by anti virus?


So be afraid! Be very afraid!


Sample of the mail is attached below, with the actual URL removed :
