Hello All,

I did receive the link to in my Skype and I asked about it.

I will conduct more research into the malware. There is a software probably
that could have been installed which sniffs open IMs and auto sends link.

Check, if there are unknown programs in your program manager, and delete

Secondly, update your antivirus program and do a full system scan.

Sometimes it even eats up files, and they fail to open with their
respective programs.
