for what it's worth, you should NEVER EVER open an attachment that appears to contain an email postcard. you should NEVER open ANY attachment until you have verified the person who sent it KNEW they sent it AND you are supposed to receive it. this pertains as well to those of you who think you can't be hit because the message appears to come from someone you know dearly. a significant fraction of the time, that person has been infected, and is passing along those genes to the rest of his contact list.

a public service announcement from your neighbourhood desktop calendar photographic service. FYI.

HUGE VIRUS COMING ! PLEASE READ & FORWARD !

Hi All,
I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are gearing up for this
virus!
I checked Snopes, and it is for real. Get this E-mail message sent around
to your contacts ASAP.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!

You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message with
an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK,'regardless of who sent it
to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the
whole hard disc C of your computer.

This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in
his/her contact list. This is the reason why you need to send this e-mail
to all your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to
receive the virus and open it.

If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a
friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately. This is the
worst virus announced by CNN.

It has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever.
This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet
for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the
Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept.

I am not sure about the validity of this, however, I suggest you read it if you have not come across this before. I, for one, always would rather play safe than sorry.
