Unpacking the Emotet Takedown - Recorded Future Podcast

Unpacking the Emotet Takedown

May 17, 2021 • Caitlin Mattingly

The Emotet malware and cybercrime campaign recently made headlines, not for infecting victims with Trickbot or Qbot malware or spinning up a new botnet, but instead for being taken down by law enforcement. In January of this year, an international effort led by Europol took control of Emotet infrastructure, effectively taking it down, as well as making arrests of alleged perpetrators in Ukraine. 

To help us understand the impact of the takedown on the global malware ecosystem, I’m joined this week by Greg Lesnewich, senior intelligence analyst with Recorded Future’s Insikt Group.

This podcast was produced in partnership with the CyberWire.
