Mekotio Case

Spanish law enforcement arrested 16 individuals involved in targeting banks in Europe with malicious software through email spoofing. The operators would send emails under a legit package delivery service or government entity. The malware is called Mekotio and Grandoreiro. To avoid such attacks, lookout for grammatical errors and if it sounds to good to be true then it probably is.

Best,

Bingo
