Two banking trojans — Emotet and Trickbot — have added support for a self-spreading component to improve their chances of infecting other victims on the same network.
This is something new because until recently, banking trojans didn’t come with self-spreading modules, being focused mainly on remaining undetected and gathering user credentials without alerting the victim.
