The attachment is invoice copy.zip which in turn contains an executable invoice copy.exe which has an icon to make it look like a spreadsheet. VirusTotal results are a pretty poor 7/45 and indicate that this is a Zbot variant.

The Comodo CAMAS report indicates that the malware seems to be rummaging though address books and gives the following characteristics:


The ThreatExpert report and Anubis report are pretty inconclusive. The ThreatTrack report is nicely detailed and gives some details about network connections which I haven't had a chance to analyse yet.

As ever, blocking EXE-in-ZIP files at the perimeter is the best way to guard against this type of threat.
