The Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham announced a $250,000 grant from Facebook Monday, and the funding comes not from the company’s coffers, but from money that Facebook has recovered from spammers around the world. The donation is in recognition of the center’s role in tracking international criminals behind social media botnet Koobface, as well as other spammers.
