Today’s #GoodGuysPrevail Update…

Posted by Johnny Lee on May 9, 2021

I know those ensconced in the (seemingly relentless) battle against #ransomware can get discouraged. That said, there is positive news from this arena…admittedly, you have to search a bit harder for it, but it 𝙞𝙨 there!

Over this past weekend, a coordinated and international #lawenforcement effort launched an innovative gambit into devices infected by the #Emotet ransomware. The gambit was designed to kill the persistence mechanism that enables this malware to run on infected machines.

This outreach marks the culmination of a larger operation that was launched earlier in the year (and that included taking over the control of the infrastructure for this powerful #botnet). Kudos to all involved…this is definitely a win…and it’s most welcome news!
