Be aware of new Voicemail Message - Virus that comes in email attachment message.zip message.wav.exe

Yahoo filtered the email as Bulk, on my pc Avast stripped the virus attachment out. So if you don't have Avast Mail Shield be on your guard and don't open the voicemail message .zip

And watch out if you use Skype click here

"The links from the bogus voicemail service notifications point to the genuine Skype website. However, according to MX Lab experts, the file that’s attached to them, SkypeVoiceMessage-7776C24212.zip, hides a double extension .wav.exe file that’s actually a variant of the notorious ZeuS Trojan"

"The threat is designed to steal sensitive information from infected systems, so if you come across these emails, be sure to delete them immediately. If you’re a victim of this attack, regularly scan your computer with an updated antivirus solution."

And Cisco are warning about it too click here

I received that one yesterday and it nearly caught me out. However Norton stopped me making a fool of myself and stepped in and quarantined it. It purported to come from Skype.
