Rodpicon Botnet Spreading Via Skype and MSN Messenger

Malwares are getting updated during the age of social networking. FortiGuard Labs researchers have discovered a new malware called ‘Rodpicom Botnet’ that spreads via messaging applications such as Skype and MSN Messenger.
Dubbed W32/Rodpicom.A - Rodpicom Botnet sends a message to the victim with a link to a malicious site that leads to downloadable content. When the user clicks the link, the attack downloads another strain of malware, known as Dorkbot. Once the target machine is infected, it checks to see if the victim is using any messaging applications such as Skype or MSN Messenger.
