Malware Spreads via Skype

September 11, 2007

Via some of the links like these:

  • http://www.{BLOCKED}
  • http://www.{BLOCKED}

Clicking such a link will lead you to download a file named DSC027.SCR, which is a copy of this worm. If you do,

  • you will see a blue image
  • your status will be modified from online to busy; that is, the worm is sending out the same link to your contact.
  • the worm modify the HOSTS file so that you can’t access several antivirus-related web sites.
