Emotet leads to ICEDID and than to TRICKBOT


ICEDID a new banking active TROGEN searved by Emotet. Emotet as a distribution operation for banking Trojans and other malware codes this year.





Emotet itself comes via malspam, usually inside rigged productivity files that contain malicious macros. Once Emotet infects the endpoint, it becomes a silent resident and is operated to serve malware from other cybercriminal groups









The TrickBot malware family has been live for several years, mainly focused on stealing victim’s online banking information.





TrickBot downloaded by opening an excel file .Using a malicious Macro VBS code that is executed when the victim opens the file in Microsoft Excel.





The VBA code starts with the function “Workbook_Open”, which is called automatically when the Excel file is opened. It then reads data from Text control, which is encoded Powershell code.





Finally, the Powershell code is executed to download the file from “hxxp://excel-office.com/secure.excel” and save it to a local temporary folder with the name “pointer.exe” whereupon it runs it.  As you may have guessed, the “pointer.exe” file is actually TrickBot.Task Schduler Starts TrickBot to load pwgrab32
