Virus infects PCs running Windows using Skype

Earlier this week Skype announced that some antivirus firms had discovered a virus that could infect windows-based PCs. It uses Skype to "jump" from one PC to another, over the internet.

So do read the following links carefully in order to be able to know if your computer has been infected:
  1. Article on Computerworld explaining how the virus spreads
  2. Announcement on Skype about the virus
  3. Instructions on Skype Forums on how to identify if you are infected
Lastly, make sure you have an Anti-virus software installed. If you already have, make sure it has the latest virus definitions.

If there's anything in there that you don't understand, please do not hesitate to ask.
