Malware spam FAIL: "Statement" / Kelly Pollard [kelly.pollard@carecorner.co.uk]

This fake financial spam is meant to have a malicious attachment, but it is corrupt:

From     Kelly Pollard [kelly.pollard@carecorner.co.uk]
Date     Fri, 15 Jan 2016 13:56:01 +0200
Subject     Statement

Your report is attached in DOC format.

The attachment is named Statement 012016.doc but due to an error in the email it is corrupt, and is either zero length or will produce garbage. If it were to work, it would produce a payload similar to that found here and here, namely the Dridex banking trojan. This is the third corrupt Dridex run today. Shame.

thanks a lot, so I misunderstood and it´s not a trojan? you made my day sir

@Mo N - it *is* a trojan, but they messed it up and it is harmless unless you go through several rather complex steps to recover the entire message, and extract and correct the faulty code.. and then run it :)
