Emotet is Getting Into the Festive Spirit

As Christmas approaches, Binary Defense analysts assess with high confidence that the threat actors behind the Emotet botnet will use phishing email messages with Christmas holiday themes, similar to the Thanksgiving holiday-themed message that the group used to spread Emotet malware earlier this week.

ANALYST NOTES

Emotet is a widely distributed email malware which serves to load more dangerous malware such as Trickbot onto a system. As Emotet is distributed through email; always investigate the source of an email before opening any attachments. Additionally, be very careful when running any macros from untrusted sources.
