Facebook donates money seized from spammers to Cyber CSI

In a classy move, Facebook has donated $250k seized from illegal spammers to The University of Alabama’s Birmingham’s Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research.

The academic center of excellence will use the money to open an expanded version of the existing facility, which is set to open next year.

The donation comes after the facility helped Facebook track down the infamous Koobface gang and helped decipher the Ghostclick scam.

“As a result of numerous collaborations over the years, Facebook recognizes the center as both a partner in fighting Internet abuse, and as a critical player in developing future experts who will become dedicated cybersecurity professionals,” Joe Sullivan, Chief Security Officer at Facebook released in a statement. “The center has earned this gift for their successes in fighting cybercrime and because of the need for formal cybersecurity education to better secure everyone’s data across the world.”
