Christmas malware

 Hurrah, it's Christmas!

UKMail Info!
Your parcel has not been delivered to your address November 23, 2015, because nobody was at home.
Please view the information about your parcel, print it and go to the post office to receive
your package.

This was sent to various of my email addresses, but not to the email address that I use for parcels - that's how I knew that it was malware. It's a doc file, and it's asking me to load it so that I can print it and take it to the post office.

I fed it to VirusTotal; 48 out of 55 products passed it as clean, but 7 flagged it as malware.

Make sure you're properly sceptical about emails sent to you.
