Skype Malware Steals Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, User Accounts

“Earlier this week, we warned you about a new piece of malware that is spreading via Skype using the message ‘lol is this your new profile pic?’ It tries steals to steal your money using both ransomware (restricts access to your computer and demands payment for it to be removed) and click fraud (imitation of a legitimate user clicking on an ad to generate revenue).

Now we’ve learned that the malware does more than that: it targets your user accounts on various Web services and can also do so in many languages. Furthermore, it’s still spreading, and fast.”
