Email Stealing Emotet Banking Trojan Resurrected in New Extensive Spam Campaign

A new ample spam campaign is spreading the Emotet banking Trojan to unsuspecting victims via maliciously crafted emails as discovered by ESET Research in November.

Emotet, infamous for being a modular banking trojan, recently got updated with a new email exfiltration module for harvesting email messages from infected systems, as observed by Kryptos Logi's security researchers.

The Emotet malware can also steal proprietary info, login credentials, and Personally Identifiable Information (PII), which is the leading cause behind identity theft incidents.

Moreover, Emotet is also known as being used as a dropper or downloader for other possibly more-harmful subsequent malware payloads.
