    With Valentine's just-around-the-corner, cyber crooks are again on a rampage, palming off their wares, disguised as Valentine's greetings and what not... Like every other year, this year too, security experts warn of worms coming as romantic messages in emails, and invading PCs belonging to unsuspecting users.

    PandaLabs has already detected a worm, they've dubbed "Nurech.A", which hides in emails with subjects like "Together You and I," "Till the End of Time," and "Heart of Mine". The malware comes in an executable attached file with names such as flash postcard.exe or greeting postcard.exe.
