This spam does not actually come from Express Insurance nor have their systems or data been compromised in any way. Instead this is a simple forgery with a malicious Word document attached.

There are actually at least two different versions of the document with zero detections [1] [2]. The macros are a bit too complex for pastebin, but you can download a ZIP here and here [password=infected].

Despite the difference, both seem to download from:


The download file is saved as %TEMP%\FfdgF.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/57. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] indicate that it attempts to phone home to: (Hosteurope, Germany) (World Internetwork Corporation, Thailand) (Microtech Tel, US)

This probably drops a Dridex DLL, however the Malwr analysis appears to have malfunctioned and I don't have a sample.
