Watch out for password-stealing Skype imposter


Heads up. There’s another Skype-related virus on the loose. This one pretends to be something called "Skype Defender" and takes on the look and feel of your Skype login screen while trying to get your username and password from you.

Most major virus definitions have been updated, so removal shouldn’t be too difficult. You can also search your computer for a file called "65404-SkypeDefenderSetup.exe" and, if found, simply delete it.

Photos of the bogus login screen can be seen at the source link below…
