Malware spam: "Final version of the report" probably leads to Locky

This spam leads to malware:

From:    Julianne Pittman

Subject:    Final version of the report

Dear info,

Patrica Ramirez asked me to send you the attached Word document, which contains the final version of the report.
Please let me know if you have any trouble with the file, and please let Patrica know if you have any questions about the contents of the report.


Kind regards


Julianne Pittman
Operations Director (CEO Designate)
The names in each version of the email vary. Attached is a ZIP file with a filename containing some version of the recipients email address and the word "report" which contains in turn a malicious ZIP .js script beginning with the words "unpaid".

The payload is not known at this time and analysis is pending, but is likely to be Locky ransomware similar to this.

UPDATE 1

Hybrid Analysis of three sample scripts [1] [2] [3] show three download locations (you can bet there will be many more):

bptec.ir/kvk9leho
promoresults.com.au/gx4al
boranwebshop.nl/ggc7ld


Each one drops a slightly different binary (VirusTotal results [4] [5] [6]) but at the moment automated analysis is inconclusive [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]. I will try to post the C2 servers here if I get them.

UPDATE 2

A trusted third party analysis shows the following download locations (thank you!) :

We have been receiving the "Final version of the report" spam since yesterday, with the corresponding zip file, about 30 to 40 emails to different email addresses.
this is an example, just like the one you posted:

Dear info,

Cecil Vance asked me to send you the attached Word document, which contains the final version of the report.
Please let me know if you have any trouble with the file, and please let Cecil know if you have any questions about the contents of the report.

the zip file is info_report_609435.zip

I wonder how they harvested the email addresses
