Last week I meant to write about this, but Skype is advising people about some malware that is floating around that tries to entice Skype users to click a link that will then infect your computer. The rather despicable fashion the malware uses is to send a chat message that says “Please help me find this girl” referring to Madeleine McCann. Facetime Security Labs has a lengthy writeup that goes into all sorts of details about the particular worm variant. It propagates via IM, so it’s not anything particularly tied into VoIP, but obviously just something people should be concerned about.
