Emotet Malware Concerns

As malware continues to become more sophisticated, another type of malware, known as Emotet malware, is a major area of concern. Emotet malware was originally designed to steal banking information. As it has evolved, Emotet malware has become a major threat to users by using stolen attachments to gain access to and attack contacts. This is the first time that hackers are able to “add credibility” to emails by using stolen attachments. These hackers are essentially hijacking existing email threads and adding a malicious attachment or URL to the email.
