Emotet banking trojan possibly being prepped for a new attack

Emotet last came to life in January 2020 but analysts with the Herjavec Group believe the new modules are being placed as a first step toward the launch of a new phishing campaign. If and when this is released targets will find themselves battling its anti-malware evasion and a hashbusting implementation which makes it more dangerous compared to previous versions. Hashbusting ensures that the malware will have a different hash on each system it infects, rendering hash-based detections useless.
