If you see this, then you have had a lucky escape because the attachment is in the wrong format and is Base 64 encoded. If you manually run a Base 64 decoder against it then you end up with a malicious XLS file, in one of three different flavours with low detection rates    which in turn each contain a slightly different malicious macro    which then attempt to download from the following locations:
This is saved in the %TEMP% folder under the filenames pirit86.exe, tikapom64.exe and Trekaldo51.exe (although the binary is the same in each case). This malicious binary has a detection rate of just 2/57 and according to the Malwr report, it phone home to the following IPs:
22.214.171.124 (Pirix, Russia)
126.96.36.199 (OMC Computers & Communications, Israel)
188.8.131.52 (Gamma Telecom, UK)
184.108.40.206 (University of Cambridge, UK)
