Emotet As A Credit Card Stealer

Summary

Europol and the US collaborated to take down cyber-baddie Emotet in 2021. The malware has resurfaced in recent weeks as a credit card stealer. In this case, Emotet specifically targets credit card numbers stored in a web browser for convenience. Once found, the information is sent to a server where they can be sold on the Dark Web. The main route Emotet uses to get in? The malware is usually downloaded via attachments to phishing emails.

Take Aways

  • Do not store credit card numbers in your web browser. It may take a few extra seconds to fill out your details, but the time is worth the protection.
  • Keep an eye out for standard phishing red flags.
