Koobface: No computer is safe!

Being one of the first cross-platform malware to surface, Koobface caused quite a mayhem in the cyber space before the security experts finally caught up with it. Its ability to attack across multiple operating systems, namely Windows, Mac and Linux, coupled with the exploitation of routine negligence displayed by Internet users, their fondness of social networking websites, and the over-reliance on email outlets allowed it to rapidly increase its list of victims and thus expand its botnet. Strains of Koobface are still on the hunt in the cyber space, though the threat is no longer as ominous as it was during its early years.
