I received this in an email and ya never know....tis better to be safe than sorry.

SNOPES HAS CONFIRMD - BIG VIRUS COMING !!! PLEASE READ &
FORWARD ! !!
( http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/postcard.asp)
Hi All, I checked with Norton Anti-Virus, and they are
gearing up for this virus!
I checked Snopes (URL above: ), and it is for real!!
Get this E-mail message sent around to your contacts ASAP.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS , FAMILY AND CONTACTS!
You should be alert during the next few days . Do not open
any message with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK,' regardless of who sent it to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is the reason why you need to send this e-mail to all your contacts It is better to receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.
If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to
you by a friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately ..
This is the worst virus announced by CNN. It has been
classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept.
COPY THIS E- MAIL, AND SEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS. REMEMBER: IF YOU SEND IT TO THEM, YOU WILL BENEFIT ALL OF US

They just sent us a warning at work and you know Uncle Sam is on the ball...lol.  It's a new version of this.  It's e-cards like 123 greetings and hallmark, etc.  Snopes is verifying that it's true.  HUGS Chris

Thanks so much for this, I sent it along to friends who use ecards alot, and aren't too up on checking things.  I use jacquie lawson cards, only $10 a year and so many, no ads, no viral threats, but I was surprised to see Hallmark on snopes' list.  Ya just have to be more aware and check that SUBJECT LINE I'd say.  Why can't people find other things to do, right?  Geeps.  xoxo CATHY
