|Malware Targeting Skype Users|
| 7:52 pm on Oct 9, 2012 (gmt 0)|
|Skype, the internet communications platform, is being used by hackers to distribute a "worm" that infects Windows PCs. |
When users click on an instant message saying "lol is this your new profile pic?" they unwittingly download a file containing a Trojan horse malware file.
This opens a backdoor allowing hackers to hijack infected PCs and recruit them into a "botnet army".Malware Targeting Skype Users [bbc.co.uk]
