SKYPE - Change your password now!

20 July, 2015

July 20, 2015 A significant number of Skype users have been receiving spoof emails that ask you to click on a link that takes you to a suspect web site. If you are a Skype user and you receive an email from another Skype user then be very careful. Only open the email if you know the contact and consider it normal to receive Skype emails from them. This does not affect normal email messages that are not connected to Skype.

As of today, Microsoft have not issued an update to fix this security problem. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that if you use Skype on a PC with Microsoft Windows, that you should change your password as a matter of urgency.

Microsoft has also advised to change any other passwords that may be linked to your Skype password, such as your Microsoft Account password.

See Skype forum thread about this issue.

If you find that you have clicked on one of these bogus emails and your PC has become infected, is running slow or you think your contacts or passwords have become compromised, then contact ComputerHomeFix for support in the Cardiff area. 02920316861
