Attached is a file e-Invoice Barrett Steel Services Ltd.doc which I have seen just a single variant of, with a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/54 which according to this Malwr analysis downloads a malicious binary from the following location:


This downloaded binary has a detection rate of 4/53 and according to this Malwr report it attempts to contact: (Megawire, Canada)

I strongly recommend that you block traffic to that IP. Other analysis is pending. The payload is almost definitely the Dridex banking trojan.

I got one the same and the strange thing is that it uses sender's message-id domain like if it is send to your organization xyz.com then it the message id of sender will be @xyz.com which is really highly skilled target to spoof messaging id.
