Koobface Gang Begins Tracking Its Victims
A new Koobface campaign gathers statistics about people who land on the fake video pages pushing the malware. The worm's authors have embedded code from a free visitor tracking service.
Koobface is a computer worm, which spreads on social networking websites. Originally launched in mid-2008 on MySpace, different variants of the malware have since been launched on a variety of social networks, including, but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, hi5, Bebo or Friendster.
Koobface is one of the most successful computer worms in history, which is mainly because of the impressive efforts put into its maintenance. The gang behind the worm always strives to come up with new tricks to infect users or methods to evade detection and make takedown attempts harder. These improvements have ranged from imitating human behavior to implementing peer-2-peer botnet control capabilities.
