Skype users targeted by voice-recording Trojan

Trend Micro researches named TROJ_SPAYKE.C the new Trojan that can listen to and record calls you make using Skype (VoIP).

The executable file installs DLL components that intercept traffic before Skype forwards it to the other user. In this way, he can save the data in form of audio files.

For the moment, it does not send that information out (to a malicious user), but the possibility of doing it in future is definitely there. So, it’s advisable not to disclose personal information during an online call.
