UPS Virus Making the Rounds

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.

UPS has released a warning regarding the 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.
