Disrupted but Not Dead – Law Enforcement Scores a Big Win Against EMOTET Botnet

Disrupted but Not Dead – Law Enforcement Scores a Big Win Against EMOTET Botnet


Congrats to the multinational authorities who collaborated to defang the infrastructure of EMOTET, a hugely successful cybercriminal malware platform.

Unfortunately, this win may be short-lived. The attackers behind EMOTET have shown great resiliency in the past and I expect them to eventually recover and rebuild their network. Regardless, celebrations are deserved for this recent impact to give relief to current victims and derail the attackers attempts to prey upon new victims.

Hats off to the Europol team and all the global partners! Well done. Keep up the good work!
