Default DHL Computer Virus- 11-12-2009

Just recd notice from my company IT staff of a computer virus attack going on right now. This is in the form of an email that claims to be from DHL shipping. Email advises of an undelivered package, and to use the attached zip file to print a label for delivery. The zip file contains the virus. If you receive, do not open, but delete the message.

I do not ordinarily pass along virus notices, but this one is happening right now.

I got a couple of those last week already. Well, sort of....
My ISP's virus program caught it before it ever reached the mail server and zapped it. All I got was the automated email notice from my ISP informing me they dumped the attachment.
