Koobface gang one step ahead of takedowns

Unread postby Sludge3000 » March 11th, 2010, 6:38 pm

Command and Control servers associated with the infamous Koobface worms have gone through a complete refresh over the last fortnight. Russian net security firm Kaspersky Lab reckons the change up might be aimed at making takedown efforts by cybercrime fighters more difficult.

Over the last two weeks, researchers at Kaspersky have seen Koobface C&C servers shut down or cleaned an average of three times per day. The number of control nodes dropped steadily from 107 on 25 February, to as low as 71 on 8 March, before doubling to 142 just two days later on 10 March.


Much praise to the register for working week updates on the tech world.
