Skype Baidu Virus

Security News

Skype users are no strangers to spam messages being sent from their accounts. And it seems to be happening again. Recently users around the world have been receiving weird baidu links from their contacts, those links leading to suspicious websites. Do not open weird links sent by your contacts, unless you have been expecting it. If it causes you suspicion, inquire your contact about it and verify with him/her that the link is safe to open. You could have also become one of those people that send those links to their contacts. Your might think that your computer has been infected with a virus but your account being hacked is more likely.

If you noticed that your account has sent out links to your contacts and it was not you, you should change your account password immediately. Your login details could have been stolen and now someone has access to your account. Skype also encourages users to check their computer security by updating their anti-virus software and checking if their firewall is still active. Many users, however, do not seem to find anything wrong with their computers, scan results do not show anything unusual and all security features are up-to-date. This means that its not a problem with your computer, rather it seems that your account has been hacked into.

In order to protect yourself from possible hacks, you are strongly encouraged to regularly change your password. It should also be noted that the more complex the password, the better. Skype also suggests that you set up two factor verification for your account. Which means that when you or anyone else signs in, you will need to type in your password, as well as a security code. The security code will be sent to your phone, email address or authentication app, depending on what you choose when you set up the two factor verification. This will prevent other people from accessing your account so easily.

If you have received weird links from your contacts, make sure that it’s safe to open. And if you are the one sending out those links, make sure that you prevent the hackers from accessing your account again. Regularly change your password, set up two factor verification for your account and keep your anti-malware software up-to-date. If someone’s trying to get access to your account, this will hinder their attempts, at the very least.
