This latest variant popped up earlier this week, according to Chris Boyd, a researcher at FaceTime Communications Inc., who blogs under the pseudonym "Paperghost."

Instant message worms have spread from network-to-network in the past, but this is the first time Boyd has seen a worm jump from Skype to another network.

Sorry for posting here ..but it reminds of the time when I last use skype ...as I too was the victim them...I lost whole chat histories and other data loses..then after I got shifted to Rhubcom conferencing appliance to avoid any such happenings. These professional versions don't have any security loopholes to exploit. A must business needs.
