Thank you for working with Booking.com.
The only sample I have seen of this is badly mangled and required some work to extract and decode the attachment invoice-1501383360.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/57. This contains a malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads a component from the following location:


There are probably other slightly different versions of the Word document that download from different locations, however the binary will be the same. This malicious executable is saved as %TEMP%\zigma2.5.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/57.

Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] show an attempted network connection to: (RuWeb CJSC, Russia)

According to the Malwr report it also drops a malicious Dridex DLL with a detection rate of 4/57.
