The name of email message attachment is "AAA0000000.pdf". This name can change. The attachment is not a PDF file, but a ZIP file that contains a malicious executable file (LAM{_dhl}.exe) that will infect your computer if open.

DHL recommends not opening the emails if identified as being “from” DHL and one or more of the following is the case:

  • You have received an email without a tracking number and you are not doing business with DHL
  • The email has an attachment and you are not aware that you are doing business with DHL
  • The email instructs you to open an attachment for the tracking number

The recipient of a questionable email containing a tracking number can verify if a tracking number is valid by inserting the tracking number into the “Tracking Number” box. If there are no tracking results returned, it is not a valid tracking number and the email referencing the tracking number has not been sent by DHL.
