|EMOTET Malware: What It Is And How To Protect Yourself by ayojademi(m): 6:21pm On Feb 23|
Emotet was first discovered as a banking Trojan in 2014. It was also once described as the world’s most dangerous malware. However, in less than a decade, it has become the go-to option for hackers all over the world.
Once cybercriminals got a hold of the malware, they sold it to other high-level criminal organizations. In turn, these organizations used the malware in other illegal operations such as data theft and ransomware extortion.
But, what is Emotet? How does it spread? Who does it target? And how can you protect yourself from it? In this article, you’ll find answers to these questions.
What Is Emotet?
Emotet is a Trojan commonly spread through spam mails. It comes via malicious links, scripts, and macro-enabled document files. Emotet emails may contain familiar branding to look like an authentic email. It may also encourage users to open the infected files by using enticing wording such as ‘Your Invoice’, ‘Payment Details’ or ‘Your Order Awaits’.
