Skype 'worm' whinnies...
It appears that the possible Skype "worm" that we reported on yesterday is actually more of a Trojan Horse.  It does not appear to exploit Skype in any way, it works in accordance with the Skype API, and requires end user confirmation (i.e. "click here to run a cool program" kinda thing...). More info from the fine folks at Websense here.
