Koobface Virus Gets Smarter; Targets Twitter and Facebook Users [Alert].
Koobface, a virus that targets computers via social networking sites, is apparently back and with added sophistication.
A typical Koobface attack – like the one that surfaced on Twitter last month – comes via a link that purports to be an interesting video (i.e. – someone tweets “my home video” with a link to what looks like a YouTube () page). Those videos then tell you that you need to upgrade your Flash player – which, many legitimate videos often do too. Upon “upgrading,” however, the user is infected with the virus.
