As a result of international cooperation, the European Union’s police cooperation (Europol) said Wednesday that as a result of international cooperation, the competent authorities have halted operations and taken over the management of the standard banking Trojan program Emotet, the most used cyber attack in the past decade.
According to the Hague-based European Union, Dutch, German, American, British, French, Lithuanian, Canadian and Ukrainian authorities have succeeded in controlling a malicious program that mainly targets the banking sector.
The success of any coordinated process can effectively disrupt the activities of cyber criminals and facilitators
The Emotet banking Trojan has evolved into a standard platform for performing various cyber attacks. For example, some units steal email credentials, while others search for usernames and passwords stored in the browser and may also spread extortion viruses. This allows attackers to maximize revenue.
Emotet differs from other cyber attacks in that, in addition to its modularity, the criminals behind the attack sell the pests to other groups. Emotet has been one of the most successful pest families of the past decade.
