Recently, the CISA has warned of Emotet attacks that are targetting the government entities; And CISA, along with the Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), affirmed that Emotet is one of the most complex trojans that generally work as a downloader or dropper of other malware.
The experts have detected Emotet in July 2020, after an idle period that started in February. While, in August, the CISA and MS-ISAC have seen a notable uptick in ill-disposed cyber attacks.
All these attacks are targeting the state and local governments with Emotet phishing emails. And this increase has distributed Emotet as one of the most widespread ongoing threats.
