Inboxes are again being hit by malicious emails purporting to be package notifications from delivery company DHL.
The emails claim that there was a problem with the delivery of your package because your shipping address contains a mistake. The emails, which include the DHL logo, urge you to click a link to access a form which will supposedly allow you to rectify the addressing error.
However, DHL is not sending these emails and they have no connection to the company. They are designed to trick you into downloading malware to your computer. The link in the emails opens a website that contains the malware.
In fact, this version is just one in a long series of scam emails that have masqueraded as DHL package delivery notifications. The names of several other well-known delivery companies including FedEx and TNT have been used in similar malware attacks.
