Malware spam: "FW: Passport copy" / "salim@humdsolicitors.co.uk"

This fake legal spam comes with a malicious attachment. It appears to be a forwarded message from a solicitors office, but it is just a simple forgery.

Salam Salim,

Please find attached copy of the passport for my wife and daughter as requested. please note we need to complete on the purchase in 4 weeks from the agreed date.


Raad Ali
The attachment is named passport.doc. It is exactly the same malicious payload as the one used in this spam run earlier today, and it drops the Dridex banking trojan on the victim's PC.
