This fake financial does not come from Bellingham + Stanley but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment. Reference numbers and sender names will vary.

I have seen at least four different variations of the attachment, named in the format remittance_advice14DDA974.doc (VirusTotal results [1] [2] [3] [4]). These Malwr reports [5] [6] [7] [8] show those samples communicating with:

Those IPs are: (Veraton Projects, Netherlands) (ITL Company, Ukraine)

UPDATE 1this related spam run also downloads from:

This is allocted to "Private Person Anton Malyi" in Ukraine.

A file aarab.exe is dropped (MD5 05219ea0aefedc873cecaa1f5100c617) [VT 4/53] which appears to communicate with: (OVH, Canada)

I strongly recommend that you block traffic to that IP. The payload is the Dridex banking trojan, this attack is consistent with botnet 120.


This other Dridex 120 spam run uses different download locations:

The dropped "aarab.exe" file is also different, with an MD5 of c19959c2d372a7d40d4ba0f99745f114 and a detection rate of just 2/54.
