It’s Valentines Day and the internet is flooded with Valentines Day messages, quotes and some lucrative offers for the users. However, some technology experts in China have warned the users of some deadly computer viruses based on the theme of Valentines Day.

Computer users have been warned in a notice, issued by the China National Computer Virus Emergency Response Centre, not to open any spam mails with ‘Valentines Day Messages’ in the subject line. The mails contain some worm viruses like “VBS_ILoveyou”, “Worm_ Blebla.B” and “Vbs_Valentin.A”.

Online shoppers have also been warned to be careful while navigating through the offers, they get on Valentines Day. The centre has also warned about the pop-up advertisements, which offer Valentines Day gifts, may be a hoax and may harm your computer.

The CNCVERC has said that the viruses may also enter through chatting tools and internet forums. On Valentines Day, make sure you also ensure the safety of your computer, apart from making your partner happy.
