Lazy Passwords Become Rocket Fuel for Emotet SMB Spreader
As featured in the 2018 State of Cybercrime Report released this week by Secureworks®, a small list of cybercrime malware is making the greatest impact in today's threat landscape, including — but not exclusively limited to — malware families like Emotet. Emotet is a modular downloader, deployed by financially motivated criminals to steal credentials, collect email addresses for use in spam campaigns, use a compromised host as a proxy or spam server, and install other payloads on the networks of unsuspecting organizations. One of the most dangerous capabilities that any downloader malware can have is the ability to propagate automatically to infect additional hosts within a network. If it can do that, it can increase the number of computers that have payloads delivered to them, causing victims greater disruption, higher cost, and increased difficulty in containing infections.
