Security experts are warning users of new rash of malicious spam disguised as a parcel tracker.
According to researchers at McAfee, a new round of malware-laden spam messages using the cover of a package tracking invoice have been discovered.
The messages tell the user that a package sent on July 1 could not be delivered and that the user should open the attacked file and collect the package from a local post office.
When the user loads the supposed invoice, however, the malware attack is launched. The attached .zip archive unloads a .exe trojan file, which then unpacks a spyware program designed to steal user data for several job recruiting sites.
