Malware spam: "Your latest DHL invoice : MSE7396821" / "e-billing.uk1@dhl.com"

This fake invoice spam is not from DHL, but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment:

From:    e-billing.uk1@dhl.com
Date:    9 October 2015 at 09:54
Subject:    Your latest DHL invoice : MSE7396821

In the only sample I have seen, the attached file is named MSE7396821.doc and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/55. This contains a malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads a file from the following location:


There will undoubtedly be different versions of the document with different download locations. This binary is saved as %TEMP%\vtsAbd.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/54. That VirusTotal report, this Malwr report and this Hybrid Analysis report show network traffic to: (Data Net SRL, Romania)

I recommend that you block traffic to and from that IP address. The payload appears to be the Dridex banking trojan.
