Attached is a file CAR014 151238.doc which comes in at least two different versions with a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/55 for both [1] [2]. According to these Malwr reports [3] [4] the macro in the document downloads a file from one of the following locations:


This binary has a detection rate of 3/54. The Malwr report for that file shows that it phones home to: (Cizgi Telekomunikasyon Anonim Sirketi, Turkey)

There are other bad IPs in the - range, so I strongly recommend that you block all traffic to

These two Hybrid Analysis reports [1] [2] also show malicious traffic to the following IPs: (Interdominios S.A., Spain) (PT. Drupadi Prima, Indonesia) (Agava Ltd, Russia) (Post and Telecom Company, Vietnam) (VSHosting s.r.o., Czech Republic)

The payload here is probably the Dridex banking trojan.
