A new variant of a well-known Trojan horse virus is spreading through Skype's instant-messaging network, a security company has warned.
According to Websense Security Labs, a new set of the Warezov/Stration malicious code is currently making its way through Skype. The worm does not appear to be self-propagating, spreading instead through a URL sent to Skype users. When users activate it, it then passes the URL to all their Skype contacts.
