Don’t Open That E-card!

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.

Please use common sense when opening email attachments and when in doubt, don’t click.

Houstonist Tech Buzz – 070107

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.
