The email message below: "DHL Package," which claims that the recipients should open the attachment to view details because of a failed shipping delivery attempt, is a fake and is malicious. The email was sent by cyber-criminals with a malicious .Zip file attached that contains a malicious computer program called a Trojan horse, which will infect the victims' computers.

Once infected, the Trojan horse will allow cyber-criminals to remotely gain access to the victims' computers from anywhere around the world without their knowledge. This will allow the cyber-criminals to spy on them, steal their user names, passwords, personal and financial information, which will be used to steal their money or identity. So, please do not follow the instructions in the email message if you have received it, delete it instead.

The victims of the fake email message are advised to do a full scan of their computers with the anti-virus software installed on them.
