Beware a Malware on Your E-mail

. Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Beware if you receive an email the name of "UPS" even though you did not order or send goods from them. I receive e-mails like this and feel confused, so I put its subject into google search box. And the results, not a spam but Malware!

E-mail Subject : united parcel service notification # -digit number-

Attached file: -image-

Message body:

Dear customer.

The parcel was sent your home address.
And it will arrive within 3 business day.

More information and the tracking number are attached in document below.

Thank you.
United Parcel Service.

Look like profesional, right. from **@ups.com wow

But it's a fake email. Including malware Based on the article by nakedsecurity.sophos.com

Cybercriminals are attempting to infect computers around the world, disguising their attack as an email claiming to come from United Parcel Service about a parcel delivery.

But this time they're not using words, they're using an embedded image to trick you into clicking on the link.

What's interesting is that there is no actual text inside the email's message body, instead it consists solely of an image - presumably with the intention of attempting to slip past the more rudimentary anti-spam filters.

Attached to the email is a file called USPS_Document.zip, which contains the malware attack. Sophos detects the ZIP file proactively as Mal/BredoZp-B and the enclosed file as the Troj/Agent-QGH Trojan horse.

The malware is only capable of infecting computers running Windows.

If you are one of the many people seeing this malware attack in your email this morning, please do not click on the attachment even if you are waiting for a package to be delivered. Instead, simply delete the email and your computer will be safe.

This latest attack follows hard on the heels of another widespread assault on users' inboxes which began to strike earlier this week, posing as a message from Post Express Service.

So be careful, do not click on links or image included, no need to open it, delete it immediately
