Cyber Security, new cybercrime phishing campaign exploits DHL

New cybercrime phishing campaign exploits DHL. The lure is a receipt for a parcel, that must be printed and shown to the delivery agent when the parcel would arrive. But the attachment is a malware

Cybercrime is trying to spread malware with phishing, using DHL express as a lure. Last night we received a mail, formally by the courier, on a receipt for a parcel. In the message, there was written that we have to present this receipt attached to the delivery agent, when the parcel is delivered. But a fast scan on Virus Total let us understand that is a malicious code (detected by 29 on 59 engines). Some of them identify it as Heur Trojan, other as HTML/Infected.WebPage.Gen2. Furthermore, there is no track about the sender: Caroline Elvis. Couriers are periodically exploited as a bait by cyber criminals, especially in periods of a high shipping volumes as this, caused by the Covid-19 restrictions. DHL confirmed that attempts have been made to defraud Internet shoppers by the unauthorized use of the company name and brand via email communications and graphics.
