Phishing Emails Used to Target the United Nations

The Emotet trojan recently leveraged a phishing campaign to target email addresses associated with users at the United Nations. In an email provided by Cofense to Bleeping Computer, Emotet’s handlers pretended to be representatives of Norway to the United Nations (UN). They used this disguise to conduct a phishing campaign with “highly specific targeting.” In total, they sent emails to approximately 600 UN email addresses.
