The sender's email address and detail will vary from email to email, however they all follow the same format. Attached is a file with a name along the lines of invoice_AA123456.doc which comes in at least three different versions (VirusTotal results [1] [2] [3]). These Malwr reports [4] [5] [6] show the macro in the documents downloading from one of the folllowing locations:


This binary has a detection rate of 5/52. That VirusTotal result and those Malwr reports show it phoning home to: (Hostpro Ltd, Ukraine)

I would strongly recommend blocking traffic to that IP, or indeed you can probably block the entire range will no ill effects.
