Cybercriminals have spammed out a widespread email attack, distributing malware in messages pretending to come from Fedex. The emails, which have subject lines beginning "Fedex Tracking number" followed by a random reference number, pretend to come from named personnel inside "Fedex Support" and claim that the company was unable to deliver a package on the 27th of July.
