Maya Horowitz said : “Over the past three months, the threats impacting most organizations have been versatile, multi-purpose malware like Emotet and xHelper. These give cyber-criminals multiple options for monetizing attacks, as they can be used for distributing ransomware or spreading further spam campaigns,” External link

Maya Horowitz said : “Both Emotet and XHelper are versatile, multi-purpose malware that can be adapted to criminals’ needs, such as distributing ransomware, spreading spam campaigns or distributing malvertising to users’ devices. This shows that criminals are trying multiple different illicit tactics to monetize their operations, rather than following a single trend like cryptomining which dominated the sector in 2018,” External link

Maya Horowitz said : “The impact of cryptominers has declined nearly two-thirds during 2019, as shown by the fact that for the first time in almost two years, a cryptominer is not leading our ‘most wanted’ malware list. However, this month’s most prevalent malware, Emotet, is a severe threat. It is a highly advanced botnet which is used for distributing other types of malware – especially the infamous Ryuk ransomware,” External link

Maya Horowitz said : “It’s not clear why the Emotet botnet was dormant for 3 months, but we can assume that the developers behind it were updating its features and capabilities. It’s essential that organizations warn employees about the risks of phishing emails, and of opening email attachments or clicking on links that do not come from a trusted source or contact. They should also deploy latest generation anti-malware solutions that can automatically extract suspicious content from emails before it reaches end-users,” External link

Maya Horowitz said : “Echobot was first seen in mid-May, and as a new variant of the notorious Mirai IoT Botnet it’s important to note the sharp increase in exploitations, as it is now targeting over 50 different vulnerabilities. Echobot has impacted 34% of companies around the world, which shows how vital it is for organizations to ensure all patches and updates for their networks, software and IoT devices are applied,” External link

Maya Horowitz said : “Threat actors are quick to try and exploit new vulnerabilities when they emerge, before organizations have had the chance to patch them, and the OpenDreamBox flaw is no exception. Even so, it’s surprising that nearly a third of organizations have been impacted. This highlights how important it is that organizations protect themselves by patching such vulnerabilities quickly,” External link

Maya Horowitz says : "Be it cloud, mobile or email, no environment is immune to cyber attacks. In addition, threats such as targeted ransomware attacks, DNS attacks and crytominers continue to be relevant in 2019, and security experts need to stay attuned to the latest threats and attack methods to provide their organizations with the best level of protection," External link

Maya Horowitz says : "Emotet has been around as a banking Trojan since 2014. Since 2018 however we have seen it being used as a botnet in major malspam campaigns and used to distribute other malwares. Even though its infrastructure has been inactive for much of June 2019, it was still #5 in our global malware index, which shows just how much it is being used -- and it's likely that it will re-emerge with new features," External link
