The school's cyber program played a key role in tracking down those behind the social-media virus Koobface. It took three years to end the threat, according to Facebook, which credited then-student Brian Tanner and Gary Warner, UAB's head of research in computer forensics. The $250,000 represents a portion of the money the social media giant recovered from spammers and cyber criminals with the school's assistance.
