Malware spam: "FYI: INTERAC e-Transfer to Guillaume Davis accepted" / "Bank of Montreal [notify@payments.interac.ca]"

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

From:    Bank of Montreal [notify@payments.interac.ca]
Date:    30 September 2015 at 13:34
Subject:    FYI: INTERAC e-Transfer to Guillaume Davis accepted

Dear Customer

The INTERAC e-Transfer for $2997.60 (CAD) you sent to Guillaume Davis was accepted. The transfer is now complete.

Recipient's message:  A message was not provided

Thank you for using Bank of Montreal INTERAC e-Transfer Service.

Please follow the link below to download the transaction details:

The link in the email downloads a file INTERAC e-Transfer transaction details.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of just 1/53. Analysis of the malicious code within the downloaded document is pending, however the use of sharefile.com is consistent with the delivery of the Dyre banking trojan.
