Rachel.Hopkinson 212-B59329-23A - Chasing delivery

 Rachel.Hopkinson 212-B59329-23A - Chasing delivery macro malware.

These emails aren't from these companies at all , they are 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/Excel/XML 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))

Just got this same email and happened to note the date it was supposedly sent was 6th Jan 2015 - nearly 6 months ago. Forwarded email on to my IT Department

Thanks for the article. What should you do if in the very unfortunate case (which I did by mistake), blindly clicked on the document preview when I was using Outlook 2013 to open it? Even though my office would have automatically disable macro by default. My computer is under F-secure. I have scanned it a few times, quarantined some virus (but not sure whether that’s the one).

Should I immediately change all my passwords on chrome? and paypal and bank accounts (even if it utilises external security key)

Would appreciate any wise tips! Many thanks
