    We have received a lot of positive feedback for our three-part paper on KOOBFACE (I, II, III) from all parts of the IT industry, but how the malware authors themselves have chimed in.

    The KOOBFACE gang (who are attempting to make people believe that they are a legitimate company) have left a Christmas message on each of their infected hosts. Part of this message includes personal messages for several members of the security industry—ourselves included:

    This is not the first time cybercriminals have left messages for the security industry. In fact, we posted another blog entry on this last year.
