DHL e-mail virus

Had a couple of junk mails recently supposedly from DHL they have a zipped attachment which contains the infected file.

The body of the e-mail reads thus

Dear customer!

The courier company was not able to deliver your parcel by your address.

You may pickup the parcel at our post office personaly.

The shipping label is attached to this e-mail.
Please print this label to get this package at our post office.

Thank you for attention.
