Emotet can now hack Wi-Fi networks

Security researchers at Binary Defense recently discovered an Emotet Trojan sample which features a Wi-Fi worm module that allows the malware to spread over insecure wireless networks to new victims.

This new strain utilizes wlanAPI.dll calls to discover wireless networks around a computer that is already infected with Emotet. By using the compromised machine's Wi-Fi connection, the malware tries to brute-force its way in to other password protected networks nearby.
