BBB of Southern Arizona is warning of an email that appears to be from UPS but in fact contains a destructive virus.
According to the phony email message, the recipient has a UPS shipment that could not be delivered. The reader is asked to open an attachment to access an invoice waybill in order to pick up the shipment. This attachment contains a malicious virus.
There is currently no effective removal for this virus, meaning the only cure is to wipe your hard drive clean.
If you receive an email from UPS and you aren't sure about its authenticity contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
