Another United Parcel Service (UPS) spam pretending that “A new invoice is now available in the UPS Billing Centre. Please refer to attached file for more details” is currently circulating on Internet. The subject is:
Your UPS Invoice is Ready.
The email comes with an attachment called UPS-Billing-Invoice-Notification-809288436661915.zip.
Each claims to be from UPS Billing Center – that you can view, manage, and pay your UPS invoices from a single online location.
The zip file contains the “UPS-Bailling_Notification-Details.exe”, which is a Banking Trojan used to steal banking credentials from the victim (including confidential details such username, password, credit card number, etc.). By harvesting cookies and accessing other information, the criminals can extract a lot of personal information which can be used to increase their chances to get access to the victim’s online banking account.
If you come across such E-mails do not open the attachment. Instead delete them and keep your Antivirus updated. Quick Heal detects the malicious attached file as “TrojanPWS.Zbot.y”. So users are already protected.
We recommend users not to open such attachments from the unknown emails
