Theres a virus going around on skype

"As of yesterday, there are several reports going around the web about people using skype and having their default webbrowser popping up, and automatically redirecting to this malicious webpage:
e324rfds.rmicrodefender27.nlXXXXXXXXX/index.php?key=15fd9e2faa63a76d64a16fc02f81f77c
I've added the XXXXs so that people will not accidentally click on it.
Skype, one or more of your ads in your rotation are infected. The rotating ads only began showing up yesterday, which corresponds with the wave of reports and with Skype being the common denominator. Please take down the ads, at least temporarily, and fix it. And for god's sake, please have some quality control with your ads, unless you want to infect half the world with a trojan."

http://community.skype.com/t5/Security- … -p/2894251

You can either go back to a version of Skype with no ads or you can do this

"Open Internet Explorer, go to Internet Options>Security tab, click on Restricted Sites > "Sites" button and add https://apps.skype.com
Restart skype, ads are now gone"

If not, just watch Skype very closely.

Re: Theres a virus going around on skype

I knew I was onto something.

But nah, it's not necessarily Skype's or even the ad system's fault (although an ad system on a fucking VoIP/Video-oIP client is fucking stupid); any system that occupies the largest share of a market is going to be subject to the largest share of attacks. That's one of the reason why UNIX based systems are more secure than NT/Windows OSs (although surely not the only reason, superuser separation being one of the biggest); Windows just has such a huge market share that people spend more time exploiting it. Same thing with Skype.

When you think of an indian takeaway, it is likely that you will conjure up the image of a greasy curry being eaten in a hurry. This will then be followed by the obligatory pangs of guilt and cries of 'why did I eat SO much?' However - this doesn't always have to be the case!
