TrojanDownloader.Kuluoz.B distributed via image based email

Another United Parcel Service (UPS) spam has been discovered and this involves emails regarding failed package deliveries due to a faulty recipient address.

The emails carry different subjects like:

  • Your parcel is not delivered
  • Error in the delivery address ID#7277
  • Failure to deliver ID #92198
  • Print your postal label
  • UPS delivery refuse ID #4714
  • You should come to the post office
  • Your delivery status has changed

The email is sent from a spoofed UPS address statements@us-ups.com.prediger.de and has the following body:

Behind the image is a URL – hxxp://www.wis-freiberg.de/JLBYAWZHRN.htm. This downloads a file named Label_Copy_UPS.zip and contains a 109 kB executable file called Label_Copy_UPS.exe.

Upon execution, it downloads and installs a rogueware called Live Secutiy Platinum.

Quick Heal successfully detects and deletes the attached file along with the installed rogueware from your machine.

    I downloaded Label_Copy_UPS.zip and then VP repaired Label_Copy_UPS.exe as TrojanDownloader.Kuluoz.B

    But if it is proved that mentioned url downloads malicious file then Quick Heal Browsing Protection should detect url as a first line of defence But it is not detecting that !.

    • Hi Onil,
      Browsing Protection blocks access to infected websites. In this case the malware enters the system only when an executable file is downloaded. That is when it is detected by Quick Heal.

    • Hi Palak,
      Firstly, you can report the emails as spam to the service provider that you are receiving these emails on. As a precaution you should delete these emails right after that and you must never reply to them.
      Thanks.
