What is the “Redundancies Across The Organization” malicious email

“Redundancies Across The Organization” email is part of a new malicious email campaign that distributes the Agent Tesla RAT (Remote Access Trojan). The email falsely informs the recipient that their employment has been terminated. The email contains a malicious attachment, which users are prompted to open by the sender. If users open it, their computers become infected with a dangerous trojan that can steal personal/sensitive information.



A new malicious spam campaign is currently going around, distributing the Agent Tesla trojan. The email likely targets specific people and those whose employment information is available online. It carries an attachment, which, if opened, will result in an infection.

The email has a subject line “YOUR EMPLOYMENT STATUS”, which will immediately catch users’ attention. If the recipient opens the email, they will be greeted with an alarming message informing them of their alleged termination. The malicious email explains that because of severe tax imposition, the company the recipient is employed in is no longer able to sustain the current workforce. This has supposedly forced the company to terminate several positions in the company, including the recipient’s.

The email is supposedly sent by the company’s HR Manager. They claim that as a gesture of goodwill, the recipient will receive a three-month salary to help during the transition between jobs. The details of the payments are supposedly included in the document attached to the email. The email further explains that if the recipient has questions, they should contact the HR department using the provided email address.

If users open the attached file, they will initiate the trojan. Remote access trojans are stealthy infections that users would not immediately notice. They stay in the background to avoid detection and carry out their activities. RAT infections are controlled remotely so their malicious activities depend on the operator. What’s worse is that many different malicious actors operate the Agent Tesla RAT because developers sell its subscriptions. But no matter who is operating it, the malware can do much damage.

The Agent Tesla RAT can be used to steal highly sensitive information, such as login credentials, banking information, and payment card data. This information is immediately transferred to the trojan operators. The information can be sold on various hacker forums or used by malware operators. Users’ personal information is a very hot commodity among cybercriminals.
