It is not clear what the payload is here, but it is likely to be the Dridex banking trojan or possibly ransomware.

Malware spam: "Your order #7738326 From The Safety Supply Company" / Orders - TSSC [Orders@thesafetysupplycompany.co.uk]

This fake financial spam does not come from The Safety Supply Company but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment:
From:    Orders - TSSC [Orders@thesafetysupplycompany.co.uk]
Date:    15 January 2016 at 09:06
Subject:    Your order #7738326 From The Safety Supply Company

Dear Customerl

Thank you for your recent purchase.

Please find the details of your order through The Safety Supply Company attached to this email.

Regards,

The Sales Team
So far I have seen just a single sample, with an attachment Order.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/55. Analysis of this document is pending, however it is likely to be the Dridex banking trojan.

UPDATE 1

This Hybrid Analysis on the first sample shows it downloading from:

149.156.208.41/~s159928/786585d/08g7g6r56r.exe

That download IP belongs to Academic Computer Centre CYFRONET AGH, Poland. This executable also seems to commicate with:

216.117.130.191 (Advanced Internet Technologies Inc., US)
41.38.18.230 (TE Data, Egypt)
5.9.37.137 (Hetzner, Germany)


I have now seen another version of the DOC file [VT 4/54] which has similar characteristics.

Dropped file MD5:
9138e36d70ab94349558c61e92ab9ae2

Attachment MD5s:
d5a25f10cb91e0afd00f970cee7c5f01
985bb69a8c292d90a5bd51b3dbec76ac


UPDATE 2

This related spam run gives some additional download locations:

nasha-pasika.lviv.ua/786585d/08g7g6r56r.exe
arm.tv/786585d/08g7g6r56r.exe


Sources also tell me that there is one at:

204.197.242.166/~topbun1/786585d/08g7g6r56r.exe

Malware spam: "Sales Invoice OP/I599241 For ANDSTRAT (NO.355) LTD" / "orders@kidd-uk.com"

This fake financial spam is not from James F Kidd, but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment:
From:    orders@kidd-uk.com
Date:    30 November 2015 at 13:42
Subject:    Sales Invoice OP/I599241 For ANDSTRAT (NO.355) LTD

 Please see enclosed Sales Invoice for your attention.

 Regards from Accounts at James F Kidd
 ( email: accounts@kidd-uk.com )
I have seen a single copy of this spam with an attachment invoice574206_1.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/55.

This Malwr report indicates that in this case there may be an error in the malicious macro [pastebin]. The Hybrid Analysis report is inconclusive. This document is presumably attempting to drop the Dridex banking trojan.

UPDATE

I have received two more samples, one names invoice574206/1.pdf and the other invoice574206/1.doc. Both are Word documents (so the one with the PDF extension will not open). The VirusTotal detection rates are 7/54 and 4/55. One of these two also produces an error when run.

The working attachment (according to this Malwr report and Hybrid Analysis report) downloads a malicious binary from:

bjdennehy.ie/~upload/89u87/454sd.exe

This has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/54. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] [4] show malicious traffic to:

+20 3 2983245 telepest

For some reason I've been plagued with cold calling telepests recently. This particular one (+20 3 2983245) offered the usual "press 5 to be ripped off" and "press 9 to try to unsubscribe which we will ignore" recorded message about claiming for an accident.

There was a very politely spoken and nice young man on the end of the phone. He seemed a bit perplexed and upset when I told him to f--k off and leave me alone. Good.

I don't know exactly who is behind this nuisance activity, but they were calling a TPS-registered phone from a number in Alexandria, Egypt. Offshoring fraudulent activity like this is quite common, but this is the first time that I've had to swear at an Egyptian. Perhaps the poor guy will consider doing something less scummy instead.

Update: unbelievably, they rang back again. This time I had a chat with another guy, and we had a discussion about my horrible industrial accident when my penis got caught in the shredder at work . There was blood everywhere, it was a real shocker for the other people in the office too. I asked where he was calling from, and he said Cambridge.. so I replied that it was odd that it appeared to be a number from Alexandria, and that he was a lying scumbag and please could he f--k off and never call me again. Oddly enough, he hung up.
