Koobface posts a message on social network or sends a message to everyone on victim’s contacts list. The link leads to a fraudulent website which offers downloading either a video codec or Flash player update. If user downloads the file, he/she gets a copy of Koobface worm onto computer. We advise Twitter users to avoid clicking URLs on tweets, specially if the tweet advertises a home video.
