#Infosec Virus Delivery via Email

I’ve been getting a lot of these emails lately. If you receive an email with an attachment and you did not expect it, or in this case if you did expect it. Take a closer look. This Christmas season, a lot of packages were sent out Fedex, so I’m guessing these spammers wanted to take advantage of that. The bottom line, just delete the email.

This email has several problems.  Any one of these three signs would make me delete the email.

1) The from email address does not match the from name.

2) The signature line is just not right for something coming from Fedex.

3) It has a zip attachment. DO NOT OPEN THE ZIP FILE.
