Koobface to be Revealed

According to news reports, Facebook, the world’s largest social network will announce that it’s planning to share the information it has gathered over the years about the Koobface Gang. The report said that Facebook believes “public namings” could go a long way toward stopping the gang from operating, and potentially help law enforcement officials start taking it down.

Koobface is responsible for a computer worm of the same name that, for over three years, has targeted social networks, including Facebook. The worm targets Windows and Mac OS X users by getting them to click on malicious links. The malware is notable for not attempting to steal financial information. The people behind Koobface make money by using the peer-to-peer botnet to download pay-per-install malware on computers and redirecting search queries to display ads.
