Koobface Now Tracking Its Success

Monday Aug 2nd 2010 by Kara Reeder

Koobface hackers add code to track success hourly.

According to V3.co.uk, Trend Micro is warning that the hackers behind the Koobface worm have added code that monitors the success of their endeavors.

The bot uses bogus YouTube pages designed to trick victims into installing what they believe is a codec needed to play a video. Trend Micro advanced threats researcher Joey Costoya says:

A few days ago, these pages started to include a short JavaScript code which enables the Koobface gang to directly monitor page hits.

The hourly tracking allows hackers to "correlate the user activity based on time of day and Koobface infection count."
