Trick Bot is really not tricked, it got disrupted and they’re trying to rebuild

Well, Its time to try and catch up with some of the news I’ve read, and I think I want to start this post about Trick Bot. We’ve covered on the blog trick bot quite a lot, and even a recent article about its potential disruption more than a takedown. Tim Starks at Cyberscoop is reporting that this botnet is really suffering now, and they’re trying to rebuild instead of trying to attack.

This is probably good news, maybe a lot of spam will be slowed down because of this botnet, but then again, as for spam coming through contact forms, that’ll happen no matter what.

After some initial doubts, Tuesday brought encouraging signs that a multi-front attempt to dismantle the massive TrickBot botnet in advance of Election
Day has taken root, perhaps thanks to an extra push.

This is how the article starts, and it has linked material for people to link to.

I don’t honestly remember if it was Cyberscoop or Krebs on Security that broke the news on this particular news of this botnet, but I think this is a promising sign.

TrickBot really is on the run after Microsoft, Cyber Command disruption is the article if you wish to read more. I hope this is a sign for operators of these things taking notice that at least here in the U.S., we’re starting to figure out where these things are hosted, and we’ll try to cause havoc since you are doing things that should be punishable by law.

As discussed in our own Security Podcast 15, we can’t do it alone as citizens, even though that podcast covered personal info and what people are doing as well as what is found online. The botnets aren’t helping either because they latch on to the machine and we don’t know either unless it is slowed down.

Did you read the article? Feel free to comment on this one.
