Wanna dissect a Twitter virus?

May 30th, 2009

I grabbed the source of the recent “Best Video” Twitter virus.

It’s stashed away at http://narcvs.com/security/best_video_virus.js if you care to have a look.

Pretty intricate stuff - would love to have a look at the obfuscation engine they use.

    Frankly, I don’t see the value of twitter. I read one market research report that revealed that nearly half of all tweets was “pointless babble.” Only 9% had “pass-along value.” Perhaps only 4% was “news.” Okay, I’m a senior citizen, but I get Instant Messaging. I get MySpace, FaceBook and Friendster. Heck, I even get an occasional rap song, if the beat and melody are just right. But this SMS for the internet seems a bit too thinly clever — a bit too much fad and flash in the pan, for my tastes. Maybe there’s a Zen side to this. Anyone care to Enlighten me?
