Security experts are warning users to beware of a FedEx e-mail scam.

According to V3.co.uk, the e-mail claims that a package was unable to be delivered due to an address error and instructs user to print out an attached form to claim the package. However, the attachment contains a malicious .zip file which that triggers a zbot malware attack.

As always, users are being advised to avoid opening suspicious messages or unknown or suspicious file attachments.
