Emotet botnet taken offline in huge police operation

Law enforcement agencies in Europe and North America have joined forces as part of a coordinated effort to disrupt and take down the Emotet botnet once and for all.

First discovered as a banking Trojan back in 2014, the Emotet malware has evolved into the go-to solution for cybercriminals who used its infrastructure to gain access to targeted systems on a global scale. The malware’s creators then proceeded to sell this access to other cybercrime groups including the operators of TrickBot and Ryuk who used it to launch additional attacks.
