I have only seen a single sample of this with an attachment OutstandingStatement201602111650.js which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 0/53. The Malwr analysis shows that this script downloads an executable from:

gp-training.net/09u8h76f/65fg67n

There are probably a few other download locations. This binary has a detection rate of 2/54.  The Malwr report also indicates that it phones home to:

87.229.86.20 (ZNET Telekom Zrt, Hungary)

I strongly recommend that you block traffic to that IP. The payload is the Dridex banking trojan.

How does one block traffic from the IP if they are not computer savy?
