Attached is a file FMS-Case-CWK8SSU4K6CN852.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable FMS-Case.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 7/49. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] show an attempted connection to worldofchamps.com on (Websitewelcome, US) and a download from [donotclick]deshapran.com/img/deshp.exe on (Pioneer eLabs, India). This second part has a VirusTotal detection rate of 6/47, although automated analysis tools are inconclusive. I recommend blocking both those domains.
