Hallmark Virus

Ok… so I have been getting asked about the “Hallmark” Virus and there are always warning emails going around this time of year warning of this virus.

Yes, for the last few years there has been a virus spread by email, usually the subject is : Hallmark Postcard, or Postcard from Hallmark. There is a good chance this could be going around again with the Holidays upon us.

If you do get this email make sure to not open any attachments! If it is a legitimate electronic Christmas card it will have a link going to a website, not an attachment.

Many of these viruses come in an attachment with the file ending in “.exe”, which is an executable file. Never open an executable file that is attached to an email!

I hope that this message helps you all and prevents some infections this Christmas season!
