Koobface.LP is a worm, which is a part of a Twitter spam attack that may compromise the affected PC user's security. A malware attack is used by scammers to distribute fake Twitter and Facebook messages associated with Obama and Racism that attempt to trick computer users into downloading Koobface.LP. Malicious direct messages on Twitter carry a Facebook link to a bogus video of President Obama punching a man. The text of the tricky Twitter message says 'Check out Obama punch a guy in the face for calling him a n*****'. The deceptive Twitter message also carries a malicious link to a fictitious Facebook page. If the computer user clicks the link, he/she is directed to a fraudulent Facebook page where he/she is encouraged to submit Twitter login details. However, if the PC user enters the credentials, Koobface.LP will hack the account in order to send the same malicious message to all the contacts of the PC user. The victim is then directed to a website that shows a bogus YouTube video set against a falsified Facebook background. The computer user is asked to update a 'YouTube player' to watch the video. If the computer user clicks on the 'Install' button, Koobface.LP is downloaded, affecting the PC and striving to steal confidential information.
