Won't you be my Valentine? Won't you be my VirusTime is more like it, as a storm of malicious e-cards and messages breaks across the Net. Don't click on any unexpected e-cards or messages, however Cupid-cute -- and warn your employees not to, either.Storm, by the way, is the word: the Storm Worm is the Valentine vileness of choice this year, seeking to establish new botnet nodes on the machines of romance-eager clickers.

Send your employees a Valentine's message of your own -- e-cards, romance subject lines, Valentine (or any holiday or special occasion) e-mail is never to be clicked and must be deleted unread.

Spread the word before they spread the worm.

Otherwise, your people's computers are all too likely to be shot through the heart with anything but love.
