December's Most Wanted Malware: Greta Thunberg-themed spam used to spread Emotet


“Over the past three months,
the threats impacting
most organizations have been versatile, multi-purpose malware like Emotet and xHelper,” Maya Horowitz, director, threat intelligence & research, products at Check Point, said in the release. “These give cyber-criminals multiple options for monetizing attacks, as they can be used for distributing ransomware or spreading further spam campaigns. The aim for criminals is to get a foothold in as many organizations and devices as possible, so that
subsequent attacks
can be more lucrative and damaging.”
