Spam Advisory

Today I received this in my email:

Hello friend !
You have just received a postcard from someone who cares about you!

This is a part of the message:
"Hy there! It has been a long time since I haven't heared about you!
I've just found out about this service from Claire, a friend of mine who also told me that..."
If you'd like to see the rest of the message Click HERE to receive your animated postcard!

Daniela McGhie at Ecademy Blogs reports that this is is a scam:

Well there is now a spammer hacker out there sending them out as a "friend" and most people will click on the link not realising that it is actually an exe file wich will download malicious software onto your computer or a really vile virus.
