Sender names, contact number and attachment names vary, but I have seen just a single variant of the attachment with a VirusTotal detection rate of 1/55. The Malwr report for this sample sees a download from:


This download location is almost certainly completely malicious, and is hosted at: (ITL, Ukraine)

This dropped file has a detection rate of 3/56. That VirusTotal and this Malwr report indicate network traffic to: (PSINet, Canada) (DotSi, Portugal)

The payload is uncertain, but it could be the Dridex banking trojan.


The DeepViz analysis  also shows traffic to: (Leaseweb, Netherlands)
