several of my friends have also been 'infected' with this worm. more info:
subject gets an email from within a social network site (facebook...hence koobface, myspace, or any of the others), from a friend they know, inviting them to watch a video.... either on youtube or facebook video are the ones i've been invited to, however the link obviously doesn't take them to youtube, it takes them to something like www.34232432ueriwo.youtube.342432.com so to some people it looks legit...when subject gets there, it asks you to download a 'flash update' or a 'video codec'. kazaaaaam! subject is now infected. people with norton have told me that norton pops up and stops them downloading it.... people with mcafee haven't had the same luck... and have been infected.
the person i know with mcafee said she updated mcafee, removed the virus, and is 'all=set' but, today i'm getting more video invite emails from her...
anyone know a surefire method of getting rid of this sucker yet?
