Skype Flaw Turns Videos into Weapons
A programming error in eBay's Skype communications software could give cybercriminals a new way to sneak their malicious software onto a victim's PC.
The flaw, which was reported Thursday by security researcher Aviv Raff, has to do with the way that Skype makes use of a Windows Internet Explorer component to render HTML. Because Skype does not apply strict security controls to the software, an attacker could run scripting code on the victim's system in a dangerous fashion and ultimately install malicious software.
