Attached are two archive files quickbook_invoice_89853654.rar and quickbook_invoice_8988561346654.zip which in turn contain the same malicious executable quickbook_invoice.scr which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 8/49. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] don't give much of a clue as to what is going on here, although you can assume that it is nothing good..
