SophosLabs has intercepted many emails today, attempting to infect Windows computers via an email purporting to be an invoice from a car rental company.

The emails, which pretend to come from Europcar, have a ZIP file attached which contains a malicious payload.

Subject: Europcar Invoice [random number]

Attached file: EuropCar Invoice.zip

Message body:
