Security websites have warned users to prepare themselves for an onslaught of Storm Worm malware posing as New Year's greetings.
The Register reports that after malware crackers seemed to have missed the Christmas rush, only striking on Christmas Eve with Santa-themed striptease mails, they have redoubled their efforts for New Year with a greeting spam directing recipients to a malicious website called uhavepostcard.com. Users should avoid this URL at all costs.
F-Secure and the Internet Storm Centre are just two security websites that are constantly monitoring the latest activity. Regular updates can be viewed at www.f-secure.com and www.isc.sans.org .
