"When the FBI issues a press release about Valentine’s Day, you can guess it’s not good news. The feds are warning Internet users about electronic Valentines that are booby-trapped with a computer virus. Computer security firms confirm that they have seen many variations of the virus, which often arrives in e-mail bearing loving subject lines like ‘You Stay In My Heart" and "Hugs And Kisses." The e-mail instructs users to follow a link and pick up an electronic greeting card.

Kaspersky Lab, an anti-virus firm, said Valentine’s-related spam had spiked in the past 24 hours and currently represents 5 percent of all spam traffic." – Content courtesy of Beware unexpected e-Valentines, FBI says – The Red Tape Chronicles – MSNBC.com
