Outbreak: United Parcel Service notification malware attack
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.
Here's what a typical malicious email being used in this malware campaign looks like: [Screenshot]
Subject: United Parcel Service notification #<random number>
Attached file: USPS_Document.zip
The parcel was sent to your home address.
And it will arrive within 3 business days.
More information and the tracking number are attached in the document below.
United Parcel Service.
