UPS Tracking number virus not being removed
« on: December 11, 2008, 06:26:41 AM »
We are getting an email with the subject line


UPS: Your Tracking # (insert large number)

Many times per day, per user.

AVAST in SBS isn't cleaning it, but then again, Trend Micro on another system isn't as well.

Is there somewhere I can submit a sample of it, to be checked please?

Send the sample in a password-protected zip folder to virus@avast.com with undetected malware in subject, and the password mentioned in the email body.

Looks like another variant of the same issue, which was previously detected by avast (I sent a sample of the previous one associated with the UPS subject), so you will need to sent the attachment to avast as Jtaylor83 suggests.
