Malware spam: "Batchuser BATCHUSER [ecommsupport@cihgroup.com]" / "CIH Delivery Note 0051037484"

The CIH Group is the name behind the Euronics brand. They are not sending out this spam, instead it is a simple forgery with a malicious attachment.

Apart from the disclaimer there is no body text. If you do as the disclaimer says and run attached Word document (CIH Delivery Note 0051037484.doc) through an anti-virus product then it will appear to clean, but it actually contains this malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads a component from:


This is saved as %TEMP%\stoiki86.exe. There are usually two or three different download locations, but they will all lead to the the same binary which in this case has a detection rate of 5/56.

Various automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] [4] show traffic to the following IPs: (OOO Sysmedia, Russia) (Comfortel Ltd / Pirix, Russia) (GoDaddy, US) (1&1, Germany) (Aqua Networks Ltd, Germany) (Digital Ocean Inc, Netherlands) (Deniz Toprak / B2 Net Solutions Inc, US) (Leaseweb, Netherlands)

According to this Malwr report it also drops another version of the downloader [VT 4/57] and a malicious DLL which will almost definitely be Dridex [VT 2/57].
