A couple of virus emails currently being spread by zip file in email with subject: "Transaction Complete" or "“You have received a new fax”

There is an email being circulated spreading a virus to UofT email clients.  The emails contai a .zip fail claiming to contain a PDF document. If someone opens the zip file, their machine becomes infected and it sends versions of itself to people in their address books.

You should never open a .zip file sent to you in email unless you are expecting it.
