cdanteek Posted December 6, 2008 Report Share Posted December 6, 2008 article.... A new virus is spreading through Facebook. The Koobface -- a worm designed specifically to spread over social-networking sites -- is blasting spam messages out to Facebook members. The motive is to enable hijacking and click fraud. The messages offer subject lines like "You look so funny on our new video" and offer a link to a video site that pretends to have a movie clip. When the user follows the link, they are redirected to one of many different compromised hosts, according to McAfee Avert Labs. Finally, the user is urged to download or open a file named flash_player.exe. That file is a new Koobface variant. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
