    There's a nasty email doing the rounds that appears to be a postcard from "Aunt Edna". It actually uses a phishing-style email to redirect visitors to a site where CoolWebSearch tries to dowload via an IE vulnerability.

    I only have the one PC here so I didn't want to to a test infection, but I've written up what I've found here: http://www.dynamoo.com/diary/postcards-org.htm

    I don't have an Aunt Edna, I have been deleting that one. Stupid spammer scammers need to get a life.

    Yes, as a scam "Mum" or "Dad" might work better!

    Incidentally, I'm using Eudora 6.2 which now has builtin antiphising protection to warn you when the displayed URL is different from the actual URL, which is pretty cool.
