FedEx Non-delivery Email From UPS Logistics Contains Trojan in PDF Receipt

This is another attempt to get you to click on a link to get a PDF receipt which contains a Trojan.  Who would want to miss getting a Christmas present?



If you are the least observant, there is a big mistake the writer of this email made.  They claim the package if from FedEx, but the email address implies it is coming from UPS Logistics.  Here is the email I received:

The “GET POSTAL RECEIPT” points to a PDF that is loaded with a Trojan that will steal your passwords and anything else you happen to type on your keyboard.  We have repeatedly warned against opening unsolicited PDF files and this is a prime example of why we keep delivering that message.

A long time ago PDF files were thought to be the only safe file you could open without worrying about getting infected.  Those days are over.  Please be aware of these types of messages.
