What’s particularly, interesting, about, this, particular, campaign, is, the, direct, connection, with, the, Koobface, gang, taking, into, consideration, the, fact, that, hxxp://redirector online-style2.com/?pid=312s03&sid=4db12f has, also, been, used, by, Koobface-infected hosts, and, most, importantly, the, fact, that, a, sampled, scareware, campaign from December 2009, were serving scareware parked on 193.104.22.200, where the Koobface scareware portfolio is parked, as, previously, profiled, and, analyzed.

We’ll, continue, monitoring, the, campaign, and, post, updates, as, soon, as, new, developments, take, place.
