Christmas themed Koobface breaks CAPTCHAs

I think it's highly inventive actually.  Makes you think that your system will shut off unless you type the words in a captcha prompt, then it uses your words to create a login to a social networking site and spam / infect others.

Talk about being used!  ;D
