What is the issue - abuse.ch’s URLhaus project uncovered that the official website of Uniden has been compromised to host a MS Word document that delivers a variant of the Emotet trojan known as Geodo and Heodo.
“i feel like it would have been bigger news that Uniden, a kinda major company, maker of electronic products like radio transceivers and stuff... their website has been serving malware all day long. commercial.uniden[.]com/wp-admin/legale/Nachprufung/042019/,” JTHL tweeted.

“@Uniden_America your website is compromised. commercial.uniden[.]com/wp-admin/legale/Nachprufung/042019/ #malware,” the tweet read.
