Noticed the increasing amount of spam lately?

Spam has been on the rise, just incase you haven't noticed. A very organised group of criminals has been having a field day spreading a new worm that turns infected machines into spam mills.
This spam is truly dangerous, because it feeds off human emotion and arrives as innocuous e-greeting/birthday cards from "friends" and "secret admirers" and so on and so on. You may also get warning emails from eBay about your account being used for fraud, and this email like the e-greeting cards links directly to the infection.
Unfortunately you won't know if you have been caught unless you are using an updated anti-virus/firewall on your computer. If you have opened one of these emails lately, I suggest you update your AV and run a full system scan to identify and remove it.
