The Chronicle has a report on a recent email threat that is suckering users into clicking a virus that comes disguised as an e-card.
In most cases, the subject line informs recipients that they’ve received a greeting card or a postcard from a “friend,” “family member,” “worshipper,” “school-mate” or “neighbour.” When the e-mail is opened, there’s a link to a Web site that uploads viruses to the recipient’s computer.

I’ll be the first to say it, I am not a writer. I’m probably just a halfway decent blogger, if that. When I first got my gig at Houstonist it wasn’t to write a tech piece. It was to pick the Photo of the Day. I told everyone that I wasn’t a writer and I was just gonna pick pictures and write a sentence or two and that’s pretty much what I do. Sometimes I don’t even do that very good, but the photos definitely make up for it. Somewhere along the way I started to write this tech piece. I cull news from all over that has Houston/Technology/Internet angle and I put it all together like a glorified and glamorized link! That’s what it is! It’s just a glorified and glamorized link. Heh, that’s not so bad now, you don’t really have to be a writer to make glorified links. Enjoy these glorified and glamorized links in this month’s Tech Buzz over at Houstonist.
My latest Tech Buzz post is up at Houstonist! Check it out, there are blurbs covering Jay’s HelpLine column, Dwight’s TechBlog, local meetings and classes as well as other tech related Houston stories!
