    Does anyone know the name of the virus? My wife double clicked on the attachment on her Win7 computer, and I don’t see anything wrong on the computer yet…

    I also was waiting on a UPS parcel from someone with the same surname as was sending it to me!
    I opened it. AVG couldnt clean it. It was obvious immediatly that I was infected as there was splash screens offering spyware removal and my browser was hijaked and directed to a ‘antivirus’ removal site.
    I ran AVG with no effect. I updated AVG and ran it again. It found nothing.
    I ran SpyBot wich found many virus infections (my system was previously clean) and I proceeded to remove them.
    I rebooted.
    Now I cannot start my pc again. I log in to my admin account and as soon as I can see the desktop before the desktop icons are set… the account logs out.
    This happens on all accounts on the partition.
    The other partition (that I am using now (xp pro)… apears to be unefected…thankfully.)

    What can I do? anybody please help?

    Hello Darren,
    I plan to write tutorial soon on how to fix this, but check this until then.

    First, when you’ll get the chance, uninstall AVG immediately. I’ve seen AVG reporting viruses on paths that don’t even exists. AVG is trash in my opinion.
    When you remove it, please install Microsoft Security Essentials or NOD32 antivirus.

    Start here and let me know if you’ll need additional help.

    It could be that userinit.exe is completely missing or corrupt. The first thing I’d try is extracting userinit.exe from the XP CD. Here are instructions:

    Boot on the XP CD and press ‘R’ to enter the recovery console. If prompted to, select your windows installation and enter the admin password (leave blank if none was set)

    From the command prompt type — copy D:i386userinit.ex_ c:windowssystem32userinit.exe
    D is the drive letter corresponding to the drive containing XP CD

    This is free and will get rid of the problem. Its safe as it from Stopzilla and is suitable for the non-techie, dont do brain surgery approach. Security 2010&inf=INTERNET SECURITY 2010&f=11&t=r&d=122009&gclid=CPnG-OTiqJ8CFU0B4wodzBnv0g

    I love you both! (in the most non sexual way possible of course) will try these sugestions now.

  13. Nik says:

    That’s why I said that I will write a simple solution which would be more friendly for non-tech users.

  14. Tara says:

    I was expecting a UPS so unzipped this file after scanning it with Nortons Internet Security 2009. However, no file was visible which made me immediately suspicious and very worried. I immediately deleted the saved file. Shortly after Nortons recognised the unpacked but (not executed) file in the temp folder and called it Packed.Generic.265. Definition file 2010.02.008. It blocked the file. So I guess that means it cannot detect the malicious file when zipped??

    I also checked the system for any of the files mentioned by Microsoft Security Essentials as shown in the above article – none were evident to my relief.

  15. Nik says:

    You are safe then. Until today, I’ve received more than 20 variants of this ‘UPS’ mails.

  16. Jeff says:

    ok so I messed up lol 😉 Yesterday I was using my friends computer to check my work email expecting a packiage from ups and yea it was the virus. We have done all his spywayre and stuff (im not a computer person at all I do not know what I am doing) anyways everything works except the internet. when you go to log onto int. explorer it kicks him off right away. Any ideas on how to get his computer fixed?

    Got a similar email yesterday, saying this:

    UPS Tracking #6343839124‏
    From: Your UPS (
    Sent: 26 May 2010 01:54:53

    Attachments: 1 attachment

    We were not able to deliver postal package you sent on the 19nd May in time
    because the recipient’s address is not correct.
    Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our office.

    What’s weird is that in the ‘To’ section this isn’t even my email address… it’s similar but it got my whole second name wrong, how in this world could I receive it when it wasn’t even sent to my address, any ideas? I knew I hadn’t sent a parcel but I was curious so I tried opening it but Mozilla Firefox detected that it was infected. Lucky eh?

  18. Nik says:

    That is probably just a spoofed address. Your real address should be seen in the mail header.

    Got the exact same email yesterday (10/22/10) just had different text, and unfortunately opened it.
    I can’t tell that anything is wrong with my competer yet. I am no computer wiz, just an avarage user. If anyone else got this new virus and can tell me anything, I would appreciate it.

  21. JD says:

    Contact UPS by phone if you’re ever in doubt about the legitimacy of a UPS email prior to opening it –
