More Trouble with Skype Security

EmailGoogle GmailShare

While Brosix continues to focus a lot of attention on user security, other instant messaging applications, such as Skype, continue to struggle in this area.

No matter if you use an instant messenger for personal or business use, one thing will never change: you don’t want to take any risk with your security.

Here are several news stories from the past couple weeks that touch on Skype security issues:

1. Hackers Use Skype’s IM Service to Spread Malware

2. Skype Dorkbot Worm Chats up Victims Then Holds PCs for Ransom

3. Skype Worm Spreads Ransomware, Botnet Links

With Brosix, you can be rest assured that security is job #1. Unfortunately, users of Skype are finding that this is not always the case.
