BBB->IRS->FTC->Proforma_Invoice.doc
Several of our ever-vigilant readers have warned us of a new targeted Trojan ?document? that is being sent out specifically to executives in corporations.
Thanks Dan, Andy and Joe!

It is another word ?document? with a malicious embedded object similar to the BBB, IRS, FTC and other targeted trojan ?documents? we have seen lately.

The file sent is Proforma_Invoice.doc
Those AV vendors that recognized at virustotal were:

Authentium 4.93.8 06.15.2007 W32/Dropper.ESR
Fortinet 2.85.0.0 06.15.2007 W32/Nuclear!tr
Sophos 4.18.0 06.12.2007 Troj/BHO-BP
Symantec 10 06.15.2007 Downloader
Panda 9.0.0.4 06.15.2007 Suspicious file

The document itself contains a icon of a pair of books (blue and yellow) and a magnifying glass and the text
?DOUBLE CLICK THE ICON ABOVE
TO VIEW THE DOCUMENT DETAILS?
The icon represents a ?Packaged Object?.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
