Malware spam: "Your Adler Invoice No. UK 314433178 IN" / "service@adlerglobal.com"

This fake financial spam does not come from Adler Manufacturing Limited but is instead a simple forgery, It is meant to have a malicious attachment, but all of the samples I have seen are malformed.

Supposedly attached is a document MD220EML.XLS but instead all the samples I see just have a Base 64 encoded section instead. Shame. If you go to the effort of decoding them, they are two moderately detected malicious documents (VirusTotal results [1] [2]) which according to these Malwr reports [3] [4] downloads a binary from:


These download locations were seen earlier, but the payload has changed to one with a detection rate of 4/55.  Those earlier Malwr reports indicate malicious traffic to: (PJSC DATAGROUP, Ukraine)

I strongly recommend that you block traffic to that IP. The payload is likely to be the Dridex banking trojan.
