Roger Luke Bristol Rope & Twine Co 140238.XLS

Roger Luke Bristol Rope & Twine Co 140238.XLS 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.

From: Roger Luke {}
Subject: Invoice

The current round of Word/Excel/XML/Docm 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))

I received this email with excatly the same attachment. As the sender's address looks like the real company address, and the company can be found in the Web, I wasn't sure what this is about... although I couldn't remember that I had ordered any ropes. Found this web site, and this confirmed that I can just ignore and delete the email without opening the attachment. THANK YOU!

Thanks for this. I had to think twice when I got this, as I live in bristol and walk past this very company on my way to and from work!

There is a note about these email on the genuine company website (contacts page).
