  • Skype users out there

    Anyone get a notification about some EasyGames or something along those lines installing itself through Skype on your computers, i spent the last 5 minutes cleaning it out of my computer, since it looked a lot like a worm.

    Thanks

    A very brief google search didn't turn anything up. I would be interested to know what you find out, as I use Skype a lot. My guess though, it was your kids/wife/roomate ;)

      Easybits go is the name of the program, and i'm not the only one.

        I don't see a trace of this program after starting up Skype and it updating (after months of disuse). However, it does seem Skype itself is aware of this EasyBits add-on/malware.

        First of all I would like to thank everyone for reporting this issue and we are looking into what has happened. Details on what is going on is very limited at this point to the moderator and admin team as we are part of a volunteer group who are here to help users like you out. And due to this reason please do not consider our team as official spokespersons for Skype. All official news will come through our blog. Thanks in advance for bearing with us.
        And it seems Skype has temporarily resolved this issue:
