These emails aren't from Windsor Flowers at all, they just being used to make the email look more genuine, ie. from a real company.
It's also worth remembering that the company itself  may not have any knowledge of this email and it's link(s) or attachment as it won't have come from their servers and IT systems but from an external bot net.

It's not advised to ring them as there won't really be anything they can do to help you.

The current round of Word and Excel attachments are targeted at Windows users.

Apple and Android software can open these attachments and may even manage to run the macro embedded inside the attachment.

The auto-download file is normally a windows executable and so will not currently run on  any operating system, apart from Windows.

However, if you are an Apple/Android user and forward the message to a Windows user, you will them put them at risk of opening the attachment and auto-downloading the malware.

Currently these attachments try to auto-download Dridex, which is designed to

steal login information regarding your bank accounts (either by key logging, taking auto-screens hots or copying information from your clipboard (copy/paste))

Hi - just analysed it:

I opened the email, but not the I safe from infection as you said about auto download or is only once I open the attachment with macro's enabled?

i have now deleted the email & run Malwarebytes

Nigel, if you opened the attachment on a windows machine with macros enabled then it's wise to scan.

If you just received the email, without opening anything/clicking, you should be ok.

Nigel: You should be ok then, still worth a Malwarebytes scan though.

Hi Steve.
I actually ordered flowers on the date at the top of the spam email. I was;t paying any attention and clicked on the attachment. I had a message on my Microsoft Word. (I can't remember what it said) and then it opened a blank document. I started paying attention then and realized what the email was. I am using a Mac. Do you think I will have trouble? Any suggestions?

Thank you.
