Last week Brad mentioned malware being delivered via word documents in SPAM (https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/Malicious+spam+Subject+RE+Bill/20417/).  Seems like this morning there was another run.  Subjects vary and the messages vary slightly, the end result is however nasty.  All have word attachments.  

Subjects Seen: "Transaction",  "LM Transaction" ,  "ENA Invoice"

Content:

Good morning
Please find the payment details enclosed with this message. The Payment should appear on your account within 1 day.

Regards
Steel Potts

Hello

Kindest regards
Jackson Blackwell

Greetings
Please find the receipt attached to this email. The Payment should appear on your bank in 1-2 days.

Best regards
Guy Roman

-------------------------------------------------

These are of course not a definitive list of subjects, but the pattern is fairly clear. 

It may be an opportunity for some user education, especially those in your organisation whose job it is to click on attachments. 

Cheers
