Double Skype attack confuses security firms

Two different pieces of malware were set loose on Skype users this week and although neither seems to be causing serious problems, security firms are confused.

Just 24 hours after warning that there may be a worm exploiting the popular Skype Internet telephony service, Websense reclassified the pest as a Trojan horse. Symantec has published an advisory about a similar piece of malware attacking the same program but it is calling the malware a worm. Finnish antivirus firm F-Secure admitted the double attack has confused security firms. Double Skype attack confuses security firms: ZDNet Australia: News: Software
