The last thing you need on Valentine's Day is a virus, and of course their are plenty of opportunities to get one.  Ned Slider warns about one that may try to get you via a Valentine's e-card claiming to be from American Greetings, so if you don't want to spend the evening running virus scans, be careful.

... and is some of you don't want to spend the evening in the dog house, take the advice at the end of the post too!

"It disguises itself as a Valentine's eCard notification. When you click on the link in the e-mail, it will redirect you to a

page that asks you to install a fake Macromedia Flash Player (Adobe Flash Player). This fake player is actually a trojan that

downloads and installs a BZub variant onto the system. Both files are now detected as Valenavir.A and Bzub.HZ respectively

using our latest database updates. So, please be cautious in opening those Valentine's Day greeting cards."
