Hey all; looks like the "Happy New Year" emails (Mal. attachment) are here

I just got one earlier tonight with a "Postcard.exe" attachement, which Avast! duly blocked access to (I use Outlook 2003 for my ISP email). The subject line was Happy New Year

I got the same thing. Outlook blocked it.

I got a happy new year email with a postcard.exe attached. I don't use Outlook. I only use webmail. I just didn't open the attachment.

Well I received it the other day but it came to my email with my ISP. They have virus protection at the ISP and it actually caught it before I even had a chance to try it out. I should have released it to see what it would do to my Mac. :)
