Mind the danger of fake UPS Express Services emails

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

It is obvious that some cyber hackers these days send massive spam emails presented in the form of allegedly UPS Express Services emails, whereas these are bogus emails, for sure. What’s more dangerous is the fact that such emails contain serious malware inside. This malware is the executable file, which might be attached directly or in the form of zip archive. Whatever the case might be, these attachments are very dangerous to open, because this directly installs virus onto your system. Here is how the text of this bogus email looks like:

Email: service-notification@ups.com
Dept: Support
The courier company was not able to deliver your parcel by your address.
Cause: Error in shipping address.
You may pickup the parcel at our post office.
Please attention!
For mode details and shipping label please see the attached file.
Print this label to get this package at our post office.
Please do not reply to this e-mail, it is an unmonitored mailbox!
Thank you,
UPS Logistics Services

So, in case you receive such a strange email, do not hurry up to open the archive attached to it. Instead, please scan your system with the help of powerful security application, like GridinSoft Trojan Killer.
