Historical OSINT - Rogue Scareware Dropping Campaign Spotted in the Wild Courtesy of the Koobface Gang

It's 2010 and I've recently came across to a diverse portfolio of fake security software also known as scareware courtesy of the Koobface gang in what appears to be a direct connection between the gang's activities and the Russian Business Network.

In this post I'll provide actionable intelligence on the infrastructure behind it and discuss in-depth the tactics techniques and procedures of the cybercriminals behind including the direction establishment of a direct connection between the gang's activities and a well-known Russian Business Network customer.
