Malware Emails

There’s a couple malware emails making the rounds right now. One claims to be from the UPS, and the other said to come from The UPS email claims that they tried to deliver a package but the recipient address was wrong. The email contains an attachment invoice which it explains you need to print out and take it to their office. The CNN email contains a subject of “ Daily Top 10” and includes links that attempt to entice a user to click on them. If you follow the link, you’re redirected to a site and prompted to install an updated flash player. In both cases, of course, the executables are not what they say they are. Usually these emails are fairly easy to pick out due to grammatical and spelling errors. It’s also a good idea to not open any unexpected attachments, even if you believe they’re from a reputable source.
