Default Email Virus supposedly from DHL

Just an FYI...

There is an email Virus, W32 Pelleuz contained in an email purported to be from DHL. Of course, it is NOT from DHL.

It says they are holding a package that was to be delivered to your home address and they need you to fill out a form before they can do so. If you open the attachement, you will get the virus.

If you have Norton (symantec) it will immediately quarantine the email. I don't know about other anti-virus programs.

Just thought I'd give everyone a heads-up.

It's been around for a long time. They blast this warning all over their site.

We have got a lot of emails like this ,we nearly have problem because we were going to open this email,because we are sending many packages via DHL every day.

Forturnately,we found the email is different with DHL email system,so we delete it.

I am not sure but I might have opened a spam e-mail from DHL few weeks back - not sure if I clicked attachment or not but would McAfee 2011 be a good anti-virus program? Have to install something new for that computer.

I should think that McAfee would be OK...
