If you use Skype, do not click any links looking like “lol is this your new profile pic?”  The link downloads a ZIP file containing an executable that installs a variant of the Dorkbot work, and opens a backdoor to vulnerable computers.  It also locks the user out of their computer, requiring a password that is ransoms for a payment of $2000!
