New Threat Intelligence Report with Step-by-Step Video Deconstructing Emotet
Emotet: An In-Depth Document Analysis, is the latest threat intelligence report put together by zvelo’s cybersecurity team. In zvelo’s effort to support the cybersecurity community with valuable knowledge and learning resources, the zveloCTI cybersecurity team has put together an instructional video and accompanying pdf document. Presented by one of zvelo’s top Senior Malicious Detection Researchers, Mario Samolis, this hour long video takes you through a step-by-step deconstruction of the Emotet malicious code which is hidden in a word document. The video and accompanying document are meant to provide a practical example from a defender’s perspective into the understanding of Emotet’s initial infection mechanisms and how to better protect your organization.
For now, the criminals behind Emotet seem to have gone to ground — possibly to reorganize and develop yet another version of their malware as they done numerous times in the past. Since there is no guarantee on when —or if — Emotet will return, defenders must continue to practice good cyber hygiene, understand our threat landscape, continue to recognize the signs of an attack, and learn how to rapidly remediate a perceived threat.
