New attack spam circulating

There's a new spam circulating, claiming to be a "Hallmark e-card". Clicking the attachment runs the malware.

The email text (at least the one we've seen) reads:

You have recieved a Hallmark E-Card from your friend.

To see it, check the attachment.

There's something special about that E-Card feeling. We invite you to make a friend's day and send one.

Hope to see you soon,
Your friends at Hallmark

The file is "" which contains a file "postcard.exe". To nobody's surprise, postcard.exe isn't an e-card from a friend. There's something special about that e-card feeling. Boy, howdy.

Word to the wise: don't click this. Remember Borepatch's Law: "Free Download" is internet-speak for "open your mouth and close your eyes."

UPDATE 14 November 2008 18:34: Heh. Why thank you, Mr. I-Have-No-Idea-Who-You-Are! Yes, please, take my credit card number!
