So far I have seen four different versions of the malicious Word document AP0210780545.doc, all with low detection rates [1] [2] [3] [4] containing various macros [1] [2] [3] [4]. These attempt to download an executable from one of the following locations:


This file is saved as %TEMP%\wiley5.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/57. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] show attempted network traffic to: (Filanco Ltd, Russia) (StarNet, Moldova) (RuWeb CJSC, Russia) (Colobridge, Germany)

This Malwr report shows that it drops a Dridex DLL with a detection rate of 4/56.
