Welcome to the June edition of the Bromium Threat Insights Report! Last month, we analyzed new malware distribution infrastructure in the US, discussed novel methods for delivering malicious payloads, and gave you the heads-up about a rapidly evolving family of banking Trojans. If you missed the May report, you can read it here.
This month’s report dives deeper into Emotet – the top threat that was isolated inside Bromium virtual machines in May. Emotet’s primary attack vector is via phishing campaigns. It gets inside your organization by luring users to click on links or attachments, which typically turn out to be weaponized Word documents. Bromium Labs have analyzed how Emotet is unpacked and initialized in the three-part blog series.
- Emotet: How It Might Infect Your PC (Part 1 of 3)
- Emotet: Catch Me If You Can (Part 2 of 3)
- The Emotet-ion Game (Part 3)
We also invite you to join us for a webinar on Emotet, presented by Robert Bigman, former CISO at the CIA. Wednesday, June 12 at 10am PDT/1pm EDT – register here.
