The spammers equipped the message with UPS' logos in order to create lend some degree of credibility to it but, unfortunately, a click on the "Print a shipping Label" button will take the victims to a compromised website serving what seems to be a label (Label_Copy_UPS.zip), but what actually is a downloader Trojan.

The good news is that the Trojan has a very high detection rate. Still, users should train themselves not to instinctively follow links or download files from unsolicited emails - no matter what the message says or how it makes them feel.
