The 3 malware families are all different in their design but make no mistake about it, all 3 will compromise your security and put your financials at risk.
Trojan.Nymaim is first to come down the line using filename exe1.exe. This Trojan provides attackers with remote access to infected machines allowing for everything, from the collection of banking credentials to backdoor functionality allowing attackers full use of the machine.

Finally, exe3.exe is identified as Trojan.Boaxxe, which as you may guess is also a Trojan with backdoor and stealing capabilities. This Trojan scans the PC for any trace of information deemed valuable by the creators and transmits this information to the attacker’s server for use in further attacks. Information is saved in the form of encrypted registry strings that are continuously updated by the malware.
Taken together, these 3 malware families will take hold of your machine, drain your bank accounts, and leave you high and dry. So just be wary of suspicious looking shipping notices arriving via email and never install files received in email without certainty of their origin.
