Malware spam: "[Scan] 2015-10-14 5:29:54 p.m." / "Ray White [rw@raylian.co.uk]"

This rather terse spam email has a malicious attachment. It does not come from Raylian but is instead a simple forgery.

From     Ray White [rw@raylian.co.uk]

Amanda's attached.

In the only sample I saw, the attachment was named 2015-10-14 5-29-54 p.m..doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/56 and which contains this malicious macro [pastebin] . The Hybrid Analysis report shows this particular version (there will be others) downloading a binary from:


Despite the apparently random name, this is a real business website (SDH Stříbrná Lhota) that has been compromised. This binary has a detection rate of just 2/56 and is saved as %TEMP%\CrowSoft1.exe. The Hybrid Analysis report for this indicates connections to: (Elvsoft SRL, Romania / Coreix, UK) (Online SAS / Iliad Entreprises / Poney Telecom, France)

The payload appears to be the Dridex banking trojan, still going strong despite reports of arrests in the crime gang responsible.
