How Koobface Infects a Computer?

Basically if you are using facebook you should watch for automated email messages that display either insulting message or some thing very tempting about you. Messages like, "you look funny in this video" or "you look so stupid in this pic" can be used to persuade somone to click on the link attached. Once the user clicks on them it takes you to a video which doesn't play and they ask you to download certain codecs which can be a 'flash_player.exe' file.

If the file is downloaded your computer becomes open to Koobface malware. It downloads a file 'tinyproxy.exe' which hijacks your PC. It can even alter search results from google,yahoo etc and redirect you to websites selling malicious softwares.

The Koobface virus is back on Facebook, alive and well, waiting to cripple your computer should you make the wrong click.  Beware of emails sent by your Facebook friends that contain a link to view a video.  This link will take you to a fake YouTube site which will request you to upgrade/download the Adobe Flash Player.  What really downloads is Koobface virus. Snopes has confirmed this as well.



The latest and most sophisticated variant of Koobface, a computer virus which targets social networks, is attacking Facebook. Originally discovered in December 2008, a potent version of the virus hit Twitter and other social networks in spring and summer 2009. Updated tracking of the Koobface virus suggests that a specific strain (Net-Worm.Win32.Koobface.b) of the computer worm is becoming rampant on Facebook. My Cured Computer, an online computer repair company, is using remote repair and log-in technology to rid infected computers of the Facebook virus.

When Koobface infects a computer, the virus turns it into a useless machine. Koobface has recently started to manipulate the computer registry and trick a computer so that it does not recognize its own files. The virus will also try to collect personal data such as credit card information.

Savvy Koobface controllers lure social networking users into infecting their own computers. The virus is starting to attract users with new and more sophisticated ploys. Yet the original method for tricking users still works to spread the virus.

Facebook users will receive a message from their friend's infected computer. The message directs users to a link and then they will receive a request to download a video player. The download is an executable file that gets past most antivirus programs and infects a user's computer.

Koobface uses popular videos and messages to attract the most views such as breaking news about celebrities. The Koobface scheme does not even require hacking into a hard drive. Users download the virus and then transfer it unknowingly to their Facebook friends. The brains behind Koobface always alter the bad code and try to stay a step ahead of antivirus software.
