Christmas Cards Spammed in February http://blog.trendmicro.com/christmas-spam-in-february/

QUOTE: Holidays like Christmas and Valentine’s Day inevitably come with threats related to the holiday itself. These attacks have become more persistent through the years, timed perfectly to dupe the most users and with the appropriate social engineering techniques for their holiday of choice.

Just today, however, we saw a certain spam run that seems to be a little bit too late – or, looked in another way, a little too early for the season it’s supposed to ride on. Christmas greeting cards are being spammed out with their message fashioned similarly to those from popular websites known for free e-card sending services.
