Windows Worm spreading via Skype

Batten down the hatches, VoIP fans: there’s a new Windows Worm in town and from the looks of it, it’s spreading itself via Skype. Apparently, clicking what appears to be an image link in a “cleverly written” chat message downloads the w32/Ramex.A virus to your local hard drive. Once the file is executed, the user’s machine can be taken over and controlled remotely via Skype’s API. More details on the worm are available from Skype’s Blog.
