Exclamation Virus spreading through Skype users

Hi there,

Be warned that a nasty Virus is doing the rounds and its spreading through users who use Skype...

In the coming days, be very, VERY careful of any messages you get from people sending you a link of a picture... it can be from people you know... or possibly don’t

The messages are very well crafted to try and make you think... ahh what’s this then... *click*

If someone does send you this kind of message... they have the Virus.

If your unlucky and already have the Virus (or think you might) then you read the removal instructions in the link below.

Expert users — and only expert users — who know what they’re doing can also remove the worm manually.
I would STRONGLY ADVISE you read the and understand as much as you can from this official blog post from Skype themselves.

Have a virus free week!

Kyle

Thanks for the heads up Kyle.
I don't use Skype much myself but I know some of my friends do and I've passed the warning on to them.
