Inside the zip-file was an executable file with the name: FedEx_Label_ID_Order_4548-657-4US.exe (Infected with a generic Win32 Trojan Dropper variant)
You can't print an executable file, if you double click it, it executes a program. In this case it will execute a virus and infect your system.
Never open EXE files sent from unknown senders, not even if it appears to be FedEx, because FedEx has no legitimate reason to send you an executable file, as a matter of fact, if they really have to send you tracking information about an undeliverable package, they can include it in the body of the e-mail, they don't have to attach anything.
Malware spammers are innovative and might create a similar e-mail with a file that looks like a PDF, but the file extension will still be exe, for example: FedEx_Label_ID_Order_4548-657-4US.pdf.exe. We have even seen examples where the real extension is "hidden", due to an vulnerability in Windows, when you make the file name too long by adding a lot of spaces before the .exe part of the file name.
Always pay close attention to the part of the file name, after the last period/point (.) which is normally the last 3 letters of the file name, because that should tell you what kind of file it is.
