Trojan Warning: "Your postal package N******"

This afternoon, Suzi just got an email regarding "Your postal package N2382975" from some dude we'd never heard of.

The email included a zip file and that immediately got me suspicious.  A quick bit of research says this is a new wrapper on an old threat.  The user opens the email, it tells them they need to print off a form or some such action and when they open the zip file, BAMMO... they're sunk.  The cool piece of code is that the "N" number changes randomly from one email to the next; probably makes it little harder to grab in anti-virus software.

In short, practice safe computing and don't open a zip (or any!) file from someone you don't know...
