Warning USPS and a Malicious Virus
USPS is warning customers of bogus email package delivery notifications. The email will contain a link that you are instructed to click on to find out when to expect your delivery. When the link is clicked on it installs a malicious virus that can steal personal information from your computer.
The subject may be something like “USPS Tracking” and from firstname.lastname@example.org. Postal Inspectors are warning recipients to not click the link! Simply delete the message without taking any further action.
If you have any questions about delivery or wish to report spam, call (800)ASK-USPS.
This may not be limited to USPS as you may also get these from UPS, FedEx or DHL as well.
If you receive an email from any of the above businesses and you are in doubt, simply delete it and then visit their web site or give them a call!
