Attached is a file 28834_wk38_2015.zip containing a malicious executable 67482_wk38_2015.scr which has a detection rate of 2/56. Automated analysis is pending, but the payload is almost definitely Upatre/Dyre which has been consistently sending traffic to (Cobranet, Nigeria) for some time now, so I suggest that you block or monitor that IP.
