QBot steals data in 30 minutes

Written by

Qbot, also known as Qakbot or QuakBot, has recently returned to lightning speed attacks, with analysts reporting that it only takes 30 minutes from infection to steal emails and credentials.
A new report by DFIR suggests that Qbot was carrying out data-snatching operations in October 2021. It is now believed that the threat actors behind it have returned to similar tactics.
Analysts report that it takes half an hour for hackers to steal browser data and emails from Outlook and just under an hour before they move to an adjacent workstation.
Qbot moves quickly to perform privilege escalation immediately following an infection, while a full-fledged reconnaissance scan takes place within ten minutes.
