It's a good thing that many of these trojan programmers are not native english speakers. "Check up this" is easier to identify as spam as "Hey man, I just saw this crazy thing, check it out!" ... or something that one teenage guy might type to another.

That's part of the normal operation of the Skype API.
Install third party plug-ins at your own risk.

Why "next generation"?

"Next generation" as in, "I really could not come up with my own code, so I just modified this a bit. And my code really doesn't do anything, just grabs the address book and sends an IM with the link to the executable."
Depressing. :( Even the dark side is slacking off in serious inventive programming.

For native English speakers, yes. But for young Europeans chatting across national borders, Broken English is the language of choice.

Next generation they say - and here I was, thinking attacks like this came along about a week after IM itself! ;)
