I got this from a Veteran friend of mine who confirmed this on SNOPES. (I will include the link.)

Being that we in the military send stuff all the time, or receive things via the mail, it is really pertinent we get the word out.

Felt this worth passing along. With Christmas coming up, I can see where this could be a real problem.

The newest virus circulating is the UPS/Fed Ex/ USPS Delivery Failure.

You will receive an e-mail from UPS/Fed Ex/USPS Service along with a packet number. It will say that they were unable to deliver a package sent to you on such-and-such a date. It then asks you to print out the invoice copy attached.

DO NOT DO THIS!

DON’T TRY TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS!

Pass this warning on to all your PC operators at work and home.

This virus has caused Millions of dollars in damage in the past few days. Snopes confirms that it is real.

Thanks Ernie!
