Beware e-Christmas cards. There’s a virus going round.(via www.moneysavingexpert.com) 

I received what looked like a genuine hallmark greeting card. All looked right, barring the main link which clicked to a virus. If you get e-cards, first check they’re from someone you know – don’t open any that aren’t.

Then hover your mouse over the link to check it goes to a legitimate site, before clicking. And always ensure your virus checker is switched on.
