It seems that a new virus is going around. This one masquerades as an email from UPS claiming that a UPS shipment could not be delivered. Readers are asked to click on the attached waybill. Of course, the attachment contains a virus.
This one must have some unusual characteristics as the signatures of many anti-virus programs missed it. I received calls from two of my clients who forgot to renew Trend Micro last month. The month old signatures did not catch the virus, although a manual update to the new signatures did the trick.
Lessons to be learned. Suspicious emails look suspicious for a reason and update your anti-virus. There are a lot of bad guys out there.Networking, Security
