Emotet steals sensitive information and has the capability to download and install other malware and modules onto the system.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either move the file to the quarantine where it cannot spread or cause harm, or remove it.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest detection database updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
NOTE If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note You need administrative rights to change the settings.
Upon execution, Emotet will attempt to create a copy of itself and then delete the main executable.
Afterwards, it creates a child process of itself, which then creates a service and uses the Windows API CreateTimerQueueTimer to invoke a recurring thread which connects to a malicious command and control (C&C;) server.
Emotet is typically encountered when the user inadvertently opens a malicious file attachment that arrives via a spam email message.
Adds the following registry key to create service:
It encrypts the following data using an RSA public key, which is present inside the file, then sends the encrypted data to the C&C; server:
It connects to the following servers:
The following functionality may also be carried out if the C&C; server responds:
