There is a new variant to Skype Worms that attempts to spread by passing malicious links to everyone on the infected user’s contact list in AIM, ICQ, Messenger, Miranda, MSN Messenger, Trillian, and Yahoo.

If you receive an Instant Message from a contact and it includes a link use caution before clicking on that link!

As always it’s advisable that you have an up to date and fully patched anti virus program to help prevent infection.
