    Just a few hours ago, Koobface has increased its Twitter activity, sending out tweets with different URL links pointing to Koobface malware.

    This is in contrast to previous Koobface Twitter activity wherein only three TinyURLs pointing to Koobface were used.

    As of writing, there are a couple of hundred Twitter users affected by Koobface in the past few hours, but dozens more are being infected as we speak.

    We advise Twitter users to avoid clicking URLs on tweets, specially if the tweet advertises a home video.

    Update 1:

    It seems this Koobface problem in Twitter is getting bigger and bigger, prompting Twitter itself to temporarily suspend infected user accounts.

    Update 2:

    Koobface and most of its components can be cleaned by our standalone cleaner Sysclean. You may download Sysclean here.
