PayPal security warning email with malware

PayPal security warning email with malware

There is a new wave of emails pretending to come from Paypal having a ZIP archive attached.
The email says that your PayPal account have been accessed by a third party and, in order to protected your account, PayPal has been locked.The user is invited to review the report attached to the email, the zip archive, containing a single executable following the template account–report.exe

There is no link inside the email, so everything was made “easy” the user : he should only extract the file and execute it.
Please don’t because it contains a malware detected by all Avira products as the dropper DR/Delphi.Gen.
