China has warned Internet users to be wary of downloading virus-infected mooncake greeting cards ahead of the traditional Mid-Autumn Festivalafter a wave of Internet worms hit hard-drives last year.

China's sprawling and unruly Internet experiences regular outbreaks of viruses and worms, often spread through hugely popular online chat tools.

"I was very attracted by the e-card on QQ (a Chinese online chat application), but after I opened it many harmful pages popped up on my computer," the paper quoted PricewaterhouseCoopers employee Pan Yanyan as saying, adding that her hard drive required a complete reformat.
