Fake Verizon email with malicious ZIP in circulation

Microsoft is warning users about a fake Verizon notification which is carrying a Trojan. The email appears to come from Verizon and attempts to make the customer feel a sense of urgency by claiming it contains crucial account information from verizon Wireless. The fake email has a ZIP file attached named ‘Verizon-Wireless-Account-StatusNotification_#######.zip’ (random numbers are used in the name). This same malware attack vector is being used in fake critical updates for Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe X Suite.
