Skype users targeted by fast spreading worm

Skype is urging users to update their software in response to a worm that has been spreading like wildfire.

"Dorkbot" uses social engineering methods in an attempt to trick users into clicking on a malicious link. A common example is a message like "LOL is this your new profile pic?" - the link downloads a copy of the trojan using a filename like "Skype_todaysupdate.zip"

Skype can be updated by downloading the latest version directly from the Skype.com download page
