malware & foursquare

from here

inspired by the story of the koobface gang and their practice of checking in on foursquare from their headquarters in st petersburg.

now, i don't want to say that foursquare makes you a target, but it does make it easier for people to target you, so if you're doing bad things then maybe you should keep that in mind... or not.

I remember that story as well. Koobface was using social engineering to orchestrate attacks in foursquare.

umm, that's not what the story was about. it was about the koobface gang revealing themselves through foursquare and (at least as far as my comic goes) making it easier for people to target them for retaliation.
