Yesterday I saw several spam runs similar to this coming from Dridex botnet 120. There are many, many variations of the attachment although I do not believe that they are uniquely-generated.

The three samples I have sent for analysis so far has VirusTotal detection rates of 2/55 [1] [2] [3] and the Malwr reports [4] [5] [6] show an initial communication with:

These IPs belong to: (Ivanov Vitaliy Sergeevich, Ukraine) (Private Person Anton Malyi, Ukraine) (PE Tetyana Mysyk, Ukraine)

I note that also hosts some bad things.. and the entire block has a history of evil-ness [1] [2] [3].

Note that there are probably other download locations. Check back later if you are interested.

These malicious documents drop a binary geroin.exe which has a detection rate of 3/54. The Malwr report for this shows it phoning home to: (Hetzner, Germany)

Binary MD5:
