Emotet Malware Warning
Last night users of AVG antivirus started receiving pop up warnings regarding the increasing threat of Emotet malware in the UK.
Emotet is a piece of malware that’s been around for many years but has become an increasingly popular choice for cyber criminals.
This is spread by emails through infected attachments such as excel spreadsheets and word documents. We discovered this infection recently with one of our customers, after a virus check following some suspicious entries in the event viewer.
Unfortunately, Emotet can evade detection by many Antivirus products. The best way to avoid infection is to not open email attachments from unknown sources. If you open such an attachment, you have a high risk of infecting your system and unwittingly spreading this to other people.
