Worm Vulnerability in Skype

Posted on 4.17.2007
A worm targeting Skype Ltd.'s VOIP (voice over Internet protocol) application is harvesting e-mail addresses and directing users to a range of sites hosting other malicious software, security vendors said Monday. Once a machine is infected, the worm sends a malicious link via instant messages to other users in person's Skype contact list, according to the F-Secure blog, stating "the link leads to an executable file that downloads a Trojan horse capable of downloading other malicious software".
