So far I have seen two different variants of the attachment doc4502094035.doc (VirusTotal [1] [2]) which according to these Malwr reports [3] [4] download a malicious executable from the following locations:


This binary has a detection rate of 5/53. Those two Malwr reports and the VirusTotal report show the malware phoning home to: (Loxley Wireless Co. Ltd., Thailand)

I strongly recommend that you block traffic to that IP. The payload is probably the Dridex banking trojan and this looks consistent with botnet 220 activity.
