Emotet Malware Campaign Spread The Infection Across The Network
This means that computers infected with Emotet are now a danger not only for the infected company’s own internal network, but also to the networks of any nearby companies that are in the original victim’s physical proximity.
WiFi security:System administrators often use WiFi networks to segment parts of their networks into different sections, but still keep internet connectivity available for all employees.
In many cases, companies use simplistic passwords for internal WiFi networks because they know only employees will be in reach to access them. Companies may not be aware that they need to use more complex WiFi hotspot passwords to prevent future Emotet intrusions.
Although a BinaryDefense researcher was not available for comment, the security vendor was pretty clear in its report last week when it said that Emotet got a major boost in attack capabilities.
BinaryDefense warns companies to take precautions by securing WiFi networks with strong passwords, as this is the easiest way to defend against Emotet’s new WiFi module.
