Cybercriminals have developed many methods to exploit browser applications in order to obtain individual’s credentials. One such method, Emotet is a Trojan malware that targets windows-based computers and was originally designed to steal sensitive, private information from banking customers. Later versions of this software were modified to enable Emotet to be spread via spam emails. In the latter half of 2018, modifications were made to the Emotet code to add a capability to exfiltrate email. This enhanced Trojan malware entitled TrickBot became the top threat attackers employed to penetrate organizational business networks.
