Say hello to the Skype Trojan (sent via email)

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

"The malware arrives in an attachment in messages posing as the latest
(v1.4) release of Skype. Legitimate downloads of the software only came out
last week, so the attack is timely. If users open the infected payload on a
vulnerable Windows machine they will find their PCs transformed into zombie
clients (theoretically at least) under the control of computer hackers."

I remembered there was some talk about the security of skype. Don't worry
about this one as it is sent via email and we all know that you should not
install binaries that come through email, *right*!
