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]
