One email appears to be a typical e-card with a colorful image of a bunny, chicks and eggs. A message invites you to “Download Animated Greeting Here.” If you click on the link or image, it installs malware onto your machine that can steal passwords and other sensitive information, as well as give control of your machine to the attacker.
You should be on the lookout for these threats in your inbox, and avoid clicking on any images or links in spam Easter messages.
