Researchers from HBGary have found a strange piece of malware on the computer of one of their client. The malware looked as an installation of Skype client but had different functionality. It used a backdoor in one of the old versions of the Skype SDK to remotely control the computer and gather sensitive data. The stolen data were than transmitted using the Skype protocol making the traffic virtually undetectable in systems regularly using the genuine Skype for communication.
