Malware spam: "GS Toilet Hire - Invoice (SI-523) for £60.00, due on 28/02/2016"

This fake financial spam does not come from GS Toilet Hire but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment. In other words, if you open it.. you will be in the sh*t.

I have seen two samples of this, both with an attachment named Sales_Invoice_SI-523_GS Toilet Hire.pdf.zip which contains a malicious Javascript file with a name like invoice_id6395788111.js. The two samples that I have seen have low detection rates [1] [2] containing some highly obfuscated scripts [3] [4] which according to these analyses [5] [6] [7] downloads a binary from one of the following locations:


(also www.ni-na27.wc.shopserve.jp/43rf3dw/34frgegrg.exe from this related spam run)

This type of download indicates that this is Dridex 220, it is unusual for it to be spammed out with a Javascript-in-ZIP format rather than a malicious Office macro. The binary has a detection rate of 5/49 and this Hybrid Analysis shows the malware phoning home to: (Hostpro Ltd, Ukraine)

I strongly recommend that you block all traffic to that IP, and possibly the block in which it resides.


The same spam is being sent out with a more traditional DOC attachment, Sales_Invoice_SI-523_GS Toilet Hire.doc which comes in at least two different variants (VirusTotal [1] [2]) which according to these Malwr reports [3] [4] downloads a binary from the following locations:


(also best-drum-set.com/43rf3dw/34frgegrg.exe from this later spam run)

This is a different binary from before, with a detection rate of 4/53. It still phones home to the same location.

Unfortunately my company has been infected.
Some users opened the word attachment and "Enabled content"

I don't know if this is an advantage but "Protected view" was on.
I noticed in one computer it added like 25 new DNS entries. I've deleted them manually but I wonder if there could be something else.

Any advise?
