I heard today about and e-card which is doing the rounds so thought I would just let you know.

Apparently you are sent an e-card from a greetings company and if you open it, it unleashes a trojan virus which breaks up into several pieces so that your virus protection can't eradicate all of it.

If you receive one, just delete it. HTH.
