Google Chrome User Profiles Under Attack by Emotet Malware

The Emotet botnet now has a new module that steals credit card information stored in Google Chrome user profiles.

Emotet was first discovered by cybersecurity researchers at Proofpoint, releasing the new module on June 6. It tries to steal names, expiration dates and card numbers stored in Chrome user profiles. An interesting detail is that the thief exfiltrates the data to a command and control server (C2) other than the module loader.
