First encountered in 2014, Emotet, a modular banking Trojan, still ranks among the most costly and destructive malware affecting consumers and organizations. Learn how King & Union utilized Farsight's DNSDB to track Emotet's movements by visualizing, identifying and connecting domains hosted at different IP addresses--ultimately uncovering the cybercriminal's trail.
Highlights of the report include:
- In 2018, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) issued an alert highlighting the serious threat posed by the malware.
- Today, Emotet still ranks among the most costly and destructive malware affecting consumers and organizations.
- Using Avalon, their cyber analysis delivery platform, King & Union was able to pull multiple reports into a single environment for real-time visualization and collaboration.
- With this information and a better understanding of how the data points were connected, the security team could then work together using Avalon to further uncover the trail of a cybercriminal group.
