Beware “Buzus” spam

Researchers at internet security firm SonicWALL warned Thursday of a new outbreak of trojan-laden spam claiming to come from shipping company DHL. The emails tell the recipients that the company has been unable to deliver a package and advises them to print out the ZIP file attachment.
