Cryptolaemus: Emotet is spread via fake Adobe Windows App Installer. The malware distribution process is the same used to distribute BazarLoader
Emotet is now spread by cybercrime via fake Adobe Windows App Installer. It has been discovered by Cryptolaemus cybersecurity experts. The malware distribution process is the same used to distribute BazarLoader. Emotet is a well-known malware, inoculated through phishing emails and malicious attachments. Once installed, it steals user’ emails to increase the malspam campaigns and deploy other payloads, as TrickBot and Qbot. Often the malicious emails simulate a reply to a real conversation, carrying a zip, an xls or a doc attachment. This, if opened, contact a link from an internal list and download a dll, starting the infection.
