Malware spam: "Lattitude Global Volunteering - Invoice - 3FAAB65"

This fake financial spam comes from random senders and with different reference details. It does not come from Lattitude Global Volunteering but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment.

Lattitude Global Volunteering is a UK registered international youth development charity (No. 272761), a company limited by guarantee (No. 01289296) and a member of BOND (British Overseas NGOs for Development).
I have personally only seen two samples so far with detection rates of 2/55 [1] [2] . These two Malwr reports [3] [4] plus some private sources indicate that the attachments download from the following locations:

This is characteristic of spam sent by the Dridex 120 botnet. All the IPs can be considered to be malicious and should be blocked. (PE Skurykhin Mukola Volodumurovuch, Ukraine) (Sembol Internet Hizmetleri ve Dis Ticaret Ltd, Turkey) (ITL Company, Ukraine) (Fortunix Networks, Netherlands)

A file kfc.exe is dropped onto the target system which has a detection rate of 6/52 and an MD5 of 8cfaf90bf572e528c2759f93c89b6986. Those previous Malwr reports indicate that it phones home to a familiar IP of: (Hetzner, Germany)
