Malware spam: "Unpaid Invoice #350" / credit control [invoices@thistleremovals.co.uk]

This fake financial spam does not come from Thistle Removals but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment.

Message text

Please see attached letter and a copy of the original invoice.
Attached is a file with a semirandomly name, e.g. RG026052317614-SIG.zip which contains a malicious script. This script then downloads an executable from the same locations as found here, dropping a malicious executable with a detection rate of 10/55 (changed from earlier today).

Third party analysis (thank you) indicates that this then phones home to the following locations: (OVH, France)
(Dmitry Melnik, Ukraine / Myidealhost.com aka Hetzner, Germany) (Virty.io, Russia)

The payload is the Locky ransomware.
