Summary : " The Koobface botnet - a product of the self proclaimed 'Ali Baba & 4', better known as the 'Koobface gang' - has
been terrorizing millions of Internet users since mid 2008, and continues to do so.


This presentation provides a unique view behind the evolutionary changes the gang and Koobface went through in its
almost three years of existence. It also explains their sustainability and why multiple industry-led takedown efforts
have been prone to failure.
