Spoofed Blue Mountain eCards

Be very careful if you receive an email that looks as if it is a Blue Mountain eCard. Unfortunately it is not an actual eCard from someone you know. It is a spoofed email sent from someone with malicious intent. When you click on the eCard it will try to install a virus. They named the file FlashPlayer_eCard.exe to make it look like you’re downloading an eCard.
If you do receive an eCard there are some ways to determine if you are getting fooled:
1) If it is a real eCard it will normally have the recipient’s name and/or email address as the FROM address, not blue mountain’s
2) Viewing an eCard should not require you to download and run any installation files. The link should take you directly to Blue Mountains’s website where you will view the card within your browser.
3) No other links work in the email. If you scroll to the bottom of the email message and the links such as “Terms of Service” & “Privacy Policy” don’t actually work, then it’s a fake!
Always be careful if your computer alerts you that you need to ‘install’ or ‘run’ a file. More times than none you shouldn’t have to install or run additional programs to view the wide range of media on the net.
