New global Dridex campaign with the lure of false invoices. The email contains a link that downloads a Word file, which then downloads a DLL and infects the machine with malware. The attachment, however, uses the same template as Emotet
Dridex is hiding behind a new cybercrime malspam campaign, which uses false invoices to convey the banking trojan in many countries. The text, written in English, refers to a payment with a link. This then leads the download of a Word document on the victim’s computer, which contacts some malicious links and downloads a DLL. This starts the malware infection chain. Furthermore, each email contains a different link. If, however, it is detected that the Doc has already been downloaded previously, the user is redirected to another site (https: //www.solvay [.com / en /). Moreover, the attachment uses the same template as the Emotet Doc.
