It's most likely to be a lad using a virus riddled cyber cafe computer and accidentally sending you a virus. It's rare as hell for them to do it on purpose. Although in saying that, I have been getting a lot of e-cards recently that turn out to be .exe files, not from my lads though, I suspect some script kiddie.

Last time I checked viruses were called viruses because they infected machines without the need for a user to actively send them from A to B.

Google is your friend. Smile

Scroll down to the entry for 3rd July on this site. The site owner reckons it's social engineering, i.e. an attempt to phish your password or other details.

I wouldn't open an ecard even if it came from my mother on my birthday and she told me it was coming. The virus potential is Condition Red.
