Yes, that was certainly malware.  .doc files are a not-infrequent vector
for attacks.  Many Windows users are vulnerable; I don't know if
Linux OpenOffice tries to execute macros.

In general, I'm suspicious of any unsolicited email that instructs me
to "open the attached document" (or zip archive).  I've never had an
email from UPS or FedEx or Canada Post or *any* legitimate sender come
that way.  When I see such an email, I delete immediately.
