Skype Patches VoIP Vulnerability for Mac OS X

Skype has patched a critical vulnerability in the Mac OS X edition of its flagship VoIP client that could be used by attackers to grab control of a user's computer.

The flaw, which Skype rated as "high" and Danish vulnerability tracker Secunia pegged as "highly critical," is in how the Internet telephony application processes Web addresses. According to the Skype security advisory, an attacker could create a malformed URL, then send that to a Skype user who, after clicking on the link, would either see Skype crash or have his Mac hijacked.

Worm Strikes Yahoo! Messenger Users

Research experts at FaceTime Security Labs, the threat research division of IM and greynet security leader FaceTime Communications, have discovered a new threat targeting Yahoo! Messenger users, known as the w32.KMeth worm. The new threat sends users to a Web site serving a barrage of Google AdSense advertisements related to mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Because of its relation to toxic tort litigation, the cost-per-click for the keyword "mesothelioma" is one of the highest in the online advertising pay-per-click market, making it a prime target for financially-motivated malware writers. Systems are set up by these cyber-rogues to funnel traffic through illicit means, generating clicks on high-paying keywords to produce higher returns on established advertising commissions.
