McAfee Warns Of KoobFace Worm On Twitter
By on July 13th, 2009

McAfee Avert Labs Blog just announced that the Koobface worm has reached Twitter. Appearantly, users are sent fake tweets with a video link and once they click on that they are prompted to download a video codec. However, instead of downloading a video codec, the malware is downloaded to the hard drive. These variants have been detected as W32/Koobface.worm.gen.e and W32/Koobface.worm.gen.h by McAfee.

What to do if you get a video link? Don’t download anything it prompts you for!
