Exposing Emotet’s Modern Infrastructure – A Case Study on Tracking Down and Shutting Down Abusive Malware In Direct Cooperation with Abuse Departments

In this post I’ll officially attempt to bring down and take offline the Emotet botnet including to actually provide never-published before OSINT type of research analysis on the actual C&C infrastructure behind the Emotet botnet which is one of the most prolific botnets up to present day with the idea to attempt a coordinated take down attempt in direct cooperation with multiple international ISPs and their associated abuse departments for the purpose of bringing it offline.


Sample Emotet known C&C infrastructure servers:
