Please beware if you are contacted by 123 greetings studio. I was asked if I wanted to submit content to this site for more exposure. I signed up for an account (Slap me here) then today I got a greeting card from them containing a Trojan horse file and Something was trying to get logged on to all my drives. AVG, Zone alarm and a system restore seem to have cleaned it out but that was a waste of a bunch of my time. They viewed my portfolio at aminus3 and bingo bango I got clobbered. Be careful!

Thanks for the heads up..! My dad uses 123 greeting cards (not sure if it's the same thing)?

Same thing...Maybe it was a hack job and not related to the site or maybe AVG isolated it when it was harmless but Zone alarm said it was asking for access to the network, then when I tried to delete the file it wouldn't. On a reboot it was tryig to access my cd and dvd drives and wouldn't stop. Just treat it with kid gloves if you get a card from them.
