Dancho Danchev reports an incident in which a friend pinged him at an odd hour on Skype "with a message pointing to what appeared to be a photo site with the message 'hahahahaha foto' and a link to hxxp://random_subdomain.photalbum.org." Yup, malware. The Poison Ivy trojan is spreading across Skype. [webroot via Joseph Menn]

    Sys Admin view: OMG EVERYONE PANIC (sends mass email to all users) DON’T CLICK LINKS FROM SKYPE!!!

    Sad, but true.
