Emailed Virus - DHL_Label_e9e43.exe or DHL_Label_e9e43.zip

A virus has been circulating in email recently, enclosed in a .zip file attachment. Do not open the .zip file - delete the entire email.

 


The DHL_Label* virus purports to be related to a failed delivery notice of a parcel by an international carrier.

I'm not sure why the virus was able to pass through our email filtering service, Postini, but it did. Delete the email immediately if you receive it.

Update: 2010-01-14

Today I received a similar virus, this time purporting to be from "UPS Manager Wilburn Mccracken". This email's zip file attachment has a file named: UPS_invoice_NR67974.zip

The virus was sent to our servers from IP address: 86.168.253.84 on Wed, 13 Jan 2010 18:34:15 +0000. That IP address appears to be in the UK.

Update: October 23, 2009

The same virus arrived with a different name for the attachment: DHL_print_label_7e392.zip

Same instructions: Delete the email immediately if you receive it.

Update: October 16, 2009

The same virus arrived with a different name for the attachment: DHL_print_label_789c7.zip

Same instructions: Delete the email immediately if you receive it.
