A false list of orders from a real company conveys the latest Formbook campaign in Italy.

The email compressed attachment in zip format contains an exe file: the malware itself. This, if open, activates the infection chain.

The goal of cybercrime is to steal sensitive data from victims. Formbook, in fact, through the keylogger function, is able to acquire everything that the user types. It can also steal email and browser credentials, as well as take screenshots. Finally, it has the ability to remotely issue commands on the infected PC, such as downloading additional payloads or updating those present.
