Fedex Virus - or not a virus

Recommended Posts

rocky500   

Just recieved an email that looks like it comes from Fedex.

------------------------------------------------

Subject: FedEx Delivery Error No|27318

 

Main Body text:

"This is a post notification,

Your parcel has arrived at the post office on December 2.

Our Driver was unable to deliver the parcel to your address.

Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our office.

Thank you for your attention,

FedEx Logistics Services."

 

------------------------------------------------

Now this has an attachment "FedEx_invoice.zip"

Inside the zip is a file "FedEx_invoice.exe"

 

I know this is not a real email and doing a search on the net points this to a virus in 2009 on one site.

Now I scanned the file with Kaspersky and all is ok. Scanned with Malwarebytes & superantispyware and they don't find anything.

Now I ran the file by right clicking and selecting saferun, kaspersky pops up quite a few messages about Malicious URL's being blocked. 4 of them.

 

Is this a new type Virus or mailware to that goes to sites and does something?. Anyone else get this?

Or is this just spam?

My email provider marked this as spam. (iinet Australia) I do have AV turned on from iinet and it came through to me, meaning it thinks its not a virus either.

 

Its just that KIS2012 does not think there is any funny business in the attachment.

It scans and says its ok.

Some sort of riskware, trojan dowloader not detected by AV's?

Thanks for that.

I think I have sent it, maybe twice.

Followed instructions and zip was in quarantine.

Right clicked "send for analysis..."

Nothing seems to happen, no notification it has been sent. Did it twice. I hope it went to them.

 

FOUND IT. My email program came up behind the browser to send as an attachment in an email. Doh!

Just got another virus from a fake "Fed Ex" email.

I do not get hardly any virus's sent to me. So to have 2 in a week is very unusual.

This time Kaspersky got it as soon as it arrived.

Trojan.Win32.Jorik.MokesLoader.em
