Keylogging worm discovered on Skype

Chris Boyd (aka Paperghost), from the FaceTime Security Labs (FSL), have identified a variant of the Bubbles worm on Skype. The team at FSL found what they're calling "Bubbles for Kids" that is designed to steal any and all sensitive information from the victim's computer through the most devious method of all - keylogging! It looks like it not only attempts to steal all your info on your machine, but once it has done that, it spreads out to all your Skype contacts.

The team have written up their findings on the Spyware blog.
