Blue Mountain greeting card virus-Fiction!

Don’t Open “Blue Mountain” Online Greeting Cards Because They May be Infected with a Virus-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

There are several different versions of this eRumor, but they all tell a story of someone getting a computer virus from a Blue Mountain brand online greeting card.  

The Truth:

There is no evidence this has happened and anti-virus experts such as Norton say it’s a hoax.  Blue Mountain ( say there is no way to get a computer virus from one of their greeting cards because the card is simply an Internet web page.  It is not an attachment that arrives with an email.

The virus that the eRumor references, W32/BadTrans@MM, is a real virus, but has not been linked with Blue Mountain cards.
