If you are a Skype customer and receive a call from ‘Skype’ Online Help, chances are you are the target of the latest phishing scam. It’s basically the same old tired routine finding malware on your computer that only XYZ.com can remove. As much as this scam happens you would think everyone would be on to this by now: obviously not.

Skype security -- or lack thereof -- is now yet another thing we need to worry about. Let's hope voice spam doesn't turn into the next malware epidemic.

I've got a couple of those last week. Set the privacy to only people in my contact list, problem fixed... for now.

The last one I got was from "Online Notification (dramonlinenotice1)". there was one a couple days before that, but either my history doesn't go back that far, or it somehow erased itself.

And yes, I did a thorough scan of the computer a few times since then to make sure things are like they should be.
