Aftermath of the Qakbot Takedown: Is My Organization Safe?

The DOJ and FBI’s joint takedown of Qakbot was a multinational operation that culminated in the disruption of one of the world’s longest-running malware families and botnets. 700,000 computers were impacted globally, including 200,000 in the U.S. Since no arrests were made, new and worrying activity suggests the law enforcement operation may not have impacted Qakbot operators' spam delivery infrastructure, but rather only their command-and-control (C2) servers.
