The attachment is BLA176035.doc which contains a malicious macro. So far I have seen two different versions (Analysed here by Payload Security's Hybrid Analysis [1] [2]) which download a binary from one of the following locations:


This executable has a detection rate of 11/55. Those analyses show the samples phoning home to the following IPs: (Hetzner, Germany) (OneGbits, Lithuania) (OVH, France) (IP ServerOne, Malaysia)
