The attachments are named in the format invoice_12345678_scan.doc - the filenames are randomly-generated and indeed every attachment seems to be unique. Typical VirusTotal detection rates are around 3/54, and the macro looks something like this.
An analysis of five of the attachments      shows attempted downloads from:
Note that these are all .TK domains.. and they are all hosted on exactly the same server of 18.104.22.168 (GTO Ltd, Montenegro). A look at VirusTotal's report for that IP gives another malicious domain of:
I would suggest that the entire 22.214.171.124/24 range looks pretty questionable.
Anyway, the downloaded binary has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/55 and the comments indicate that rather surprisingly this is the Nymaim ransomware. The Hybrid Analysis indicates network traffic to xnkhfbc.in on 126.96.36.199 (Szabo & Buhnemann, Brazil). But in fact that domain seems to move around a lot and has recently been seen on the following IPs:
188.8.131.52 (Orange Tunisie Internet, Tunisia)
184.108.40.206 (OVH, France)
220.127.116.11 (Corbina Telecom, Russia)
18.104.22.168 (Netinternet, Turkey)
22.214.171.124 (Dishnet, India)
126.96.36.199 (TANET, Taiwan)
188.8.131.52 (Osbil Technology Ltd., Turkey)
184.108.40.206 (Global Frag Networks, US)
220.127.116.11 (Szabo & Buhnemann Ltda, Brazil)
18.104.22.168 (HOSTING-NET, Japan)
There are a bunch of bad domains associated with this malware but the only other one that seems to be active is oxrdmfdis.in.
A source tells me (thank you) that servicexmonitoring899.tk is now resolving to 22.214.171.124 (iomart, UK) that has also recently hosted these following domains:
Some of these domains are associated with Rovnix.
