If you get an e-mail to open a greeting from friendgreetings.com or friendsgreetings.com or any other mailing that is a greeting of some kind, immediately delete the entire message.  

Below is the link about the site:

> McAfee has received a number of reports, which cite mass-mailing behavior from fiendlygreetings.com E-cards.  AVERT has examined samples of the messages and our findings are as follows:
>
> 1) When users access the URL, in the E-card, an installer program is downloaded locally
> 2) When the installer program is run, an End User License Agreement is presented.  The EULA states that it will send an email to all the users contacts.  When users accept this EULA, the email is sent.
> 3) This is not a worm, virus, or exploitation.
