There is a malicious Word document attached with the name TELEPHONE PURCHASE ORDER FORM.doc which probably comes in a few different variants, but the one I saw had a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/56 and contained this malicious macro [pastebin] which downloaded a component from the following location:


This is saved as %TEMP%\serebok2.exe and has detection rate of 8/56. Analysis tools are a bit patchy today, but the VirusTotal report indicates traffic to: (1&1, Germany)

The Malwr report reported a dropped Dridex DLL with a detection rate of 3/55.
