Attached is a file S174900.DOC which comes in at least three different versions (VirusTotal results [1] [2] [3]) and the Malwr reports for those [4] [5] [6] shows the following download locations:

www.helios.vn/98jh6d5/89hg56fd.exe [404 error]


These are the same locations as seen here, but now the payload has changed to one with an MD5 of 34781d4f8654f9547cc205061221aea5 and a detection rate of 1/54. The malware still phones home to (SoftCom America Inc, US) which I recommend you block.
