Malware spam: "Voicemail Message (07813297716) From:07813297716"

When was the last time someone sent you a voice mail message by email? Never? There are no surprises to find that this spam email message has a malicious attachment.

Subject:     Voicemail Message (07813297716) From:07813297716

IP Office Voicemail redirected message

Attachment: MSG00311.WAV.ZIP
The attachment is a ZIP file containing a malicious EXE file called MSG00311.WAV.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/57. According to the Malwr report, it pulls down another executable and some config files from:


This behaviour is very much like a Dridex downloader, a campaign that has mostly been using malicous macros rather than EXE-in-ZIP attacks.

The executable it drops has a detection rate of 2/54 and these Malwr reports [1] [2] show a further component download from:


This component has a detection rate of 5/57. According to the Malwr report for that we see (among other things) that it drops a DLL with a detection rate of 4/57 which is the same Dridex binary we've been seeing all day.

Piecing together the IP addresses found in those reports combined with some information from one of my intelligence feeds, we can see that the following IPs are involved in this activity: (Relink Ltd, Russia) (Caravan Telecom, Russia) (Deutsche Telekom, Germany) (FPT Telecom Company, Vietnam) (TimeWeb Co. Ltd., Russia) (First Colo GmbH, Germany) (OVH, France) (Clodo-Cloud, Russia) (Digital Networks CJSC aka DINETHOSTING, Russia) (NetDC.pl, Poland) (Net3, US) (TheFirst.RU, Russia)

Voicemail as an attachment by email is not uncommon in the VOIP field, to be fair. My own VOIP provider does this, and judging by the Apple forums threads about accessing voicemail WAV attachments to emails on an iPhone, it seems to be a common practice for these services in the US. Fortunately I normally check these messages on my Android phone, which allows me to see the full filename and extension, and I'm used to my provider using the same unique email layout every time.... but if anyone ever spoofed that layout and attached an Android virus, I'd be caught.
