World’s worst botnet is back!

 
 

Security researchers have reported that the cybercriminals behind the Necurs botnet have reactivated it. The zombie network has returned to their original business, which involved using compromised machines to distribute high volumes of spam emails.

Cisco Talos reported in January that the Necurs botnet had gone offline, which meant that the high volume of locky ransomware emails went down. Researchers have said that it has once again picked up emails from the botnet over the past few days. This will result in lots of spam emails with malicious attachments attempting to spread malware.
