    Default Christmas Greeting Virus'

    We're having major problems at work with Computer Virus'. There must be about 25 different virus' we've had to deal with. They've all been sent via these Christmas Greetings Cards that everyone's been sending to each other. The virus is embedded in the greeting and not picked up anti-virus. The virus is the usual one that sends a mail to everyone in your address book and spreads the virus this way. They all get the same greeting as you got addressed from you so they obviously open it.

    Please be careful if you have any un-opened Christmas Greetings, even from known sources.

    The anti-virus software houses are quickly coming up the relevant updates so please make sure you're bang up to date with your definitions.

    Take Care.
    Alex

    Thanks Alex, always useful to know things like that.

    These things seem innocent & that's how they catch people out.
