A banking trojan that was first reported in June 2014 targeting banks in Germany and Austria and later in Switzerland has made its way to these shores, according to a blog post from the Center for Internet Security (CIS). The trojan arrives in phishing emails embedded in a malicious PDF targeting federal, state, local, tribal and territorial (FSLTT) government employees. The emails appear to be documents and invoices from well-known organizations but are fake. Emotet is an iteration of the Feodo trojan family, the CIS explained, which also includes Bugat and Dridex.
