Bad news – infamous Qbot malware appears to have returned once again

The dreaded QakBot malware is back once again, being distributed among victims in the hospitality industry, experts have warned.

A new Microsoft report claims threat actors are sending out phishing emails and impersonating IRS employees using QakBot. In the emails, they’re delivering a PDF file claiming to be a guest list – but the document states that it cannot be viewed in the email client’s preview pane, instead requesting to be downloaded first.
