New Trojan calls on Skype

The malicious code, known as both Warezov and Stration, is similar to?an earlier version detected in February,?but with a new URL (uniform resource locator) and a new version of the malicious code, according to an alert posted Thursday by Websense Inc.

Websense warns Skype users to watch for the message “Check up this,” with a URL containing a hyperlink.

The code itself isn’t self-propogating but when it runs, the URL is sent to everyone on the user’s contact list.
