Clicking on any of the links in this email message will take the recipients to the following website:

  • www.dupreezvanwyk .co.za/ images/index.php?info=845_1340062607

It appears that the website was hacked and the malicious web page "/images/index.php" was placed on it. The page will automatically download the zip file "Shipping-Detail.zip" that contains the malicious Trojan horse "Shipping Detail.exe".

The file "Shipping Detail.exe" was scanned at http://virustotal.com and the following antirvirus software detected the Trojan horse:

  • Antivirus - Threat
  • Avast - Win32:Crypt-OQO [Trj]
  • ByteHero - Trojan.Malware.Obscu.Gen.004
  • ESET-NOD32 - a variant of Win32/Kryptik.AYMJ
  • Fortinet - W32/Kuluoz.ABY!tr.dld
  • GData - Win32:Crypt-OQO
  • Kaspersky - Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Dofoil.pog
  • Malwarebytes - Trojan.Downloader
  • McAfee - Artemis!F27B3B05B52B
  • McAfee-GW-Edition - Heuristic.BehavesLike.Win32.Suspicious-BAY.K
  • Sophos - Mal/Weelsof-D
  • VIPRE - Trojan.Win32.Kuluoz.b (v)

Recipients of the malicious email message should delete it and should not attempt to open the attachment. Recipients of email notifications from an organization are asked to go directly to that organization's website and view the information from there, instead of clicking on the links in it. Therefore, recipients of email messages similar to the one above should always go directly to DHL's website at http://www.dhl.com/ and track their shipment from there.

    My wife clicked on what I told her could be a Hacker. It asked for e-mail and password from an order shipped through DHL. We changed password on E-Mail already.

    Since you are not sure if you computer was infected with this malware, please do a full scan of your computer with the antivirus software that you have installed on your computer.

    If you do not have an antivirus software on your computer, you can download Avast. Click here to download..
