The Emotet Botnet is todays biggest threat, it is the worlds largest malware botnet, The botnet is spread through phishing emails, which target state and local governments. When the malicious botnet infection is launched on the computer, it guesses admin credentials and allows the attackers to write to remotely shared drives using the SMB file sharing protocol. Emotet is spread by using password protected zip attachments, to bypass email security gateways. The Emotet botnet also hijacks email threads by using the infected host to get an existing email chain, which then answers the thread and gives another malicious document that is attached into the email.
