China has wished computer users a virus-free Christmas and warned them to be wary of festive email greetings.

"They sometimes contain a vicious virus within," the official Xinhua news agency quoted Liang Hong, director of the National Computer Virus Emergency Response Centre, as saying.

"Our suggestion is to carefully screen emails containing blessing words like 'Merry Christmas', 'Happy New Year' and 'a gift for you'," Liang said.

"The computer virus centre advises computer users to update anti-virus software and start real-time computer virus monitoring functions when surfing the Internet."
