Achtung! TrickBot!

TrickBot does not rest. Following the recent addition of its first targeted US-based bank, a new version of the malware has been spotted in the wild.

Now in its 11th incarnation, TrickBot has expanded its ever growing target portfolio yet again – this time increasing its focus on Germany.
