Emotet is a Trojan that is primarily spread through spam emails with the intent to steal sensitive and private information from compromised accounts. Antimalware researchers have developed a simple tool where you can check if your email address or domain is involved in the Emotet malspam. Here are three quick things you can do if you find your e-mail address is involved:
- change passwords (using good password strength tips).
- scan your computer for malware infections.
- we also encourage network and system administrators to regularly educate users on e-mail spam prevention.
