Skype Toolbar for Outlook Scam
« on: March 23, 2010, 12:48:48 PM »
 Websense Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has discovered a new wave of email attacks targeting the Skype Email Toolbar. Up to now, the amount of spam is not large, but we believe it will increase.

The spam email message contains a file attachment named SkypeToolbarForOutlook.zip, which could easily deceive users but is in fact a backdoor trojan that has a very low AV detection.

The spam email copies the look and feel of the legitimate application from Skype.
