Beware of UPS Virus!

The latest virus making the rounds is the ‘UPS Delivery Failure’.

With this virus, unwitting victims receive an email from the “UPS Packet Service” along with an alleged packet number.

The mail will claim to be from UPS and will explain that UPS was unable to deliver a package to you. You are requested to print the attached invoice.

DO NOT OPEN OR PRINT THE ATTACHMENT!

Opening or attempting to print the attachment will launch the virus.

Please inform anyone in your social/work circle about this virus as it has already caused millions of dollars in damage.

Note that this has been verified via the Snopes Web site
