New Twist for FedEx Malware Delivery Email

No, the message doesn't really come from FedEx, but it uses a lot of art and design from a typical FedEx web page. Employing broken English (like the Russlish "everybody to get from street" line in The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming!) the message invents a new story whose details I had not seen before...a story intended to get you to open the Trojan-laden attachment:

Subject: We can not diliver your package

We apologize, but it seem so, that we not can deliver your package. One of our trucks is burned tonight. In attachment you can find a form for insurance. Please fill it out and send it us urgent, because we must told amount of damage to the Insurance company.

[Attachment: Insurance_form_#39061.zip]

If your PC isn't protected by antivirus software, you might as well throw your computer onto the burning truck bonfire.
