A few days ago many Skype users have noticed that they’ve received a malicious malware message containing a fake Flash Player update link. This issue has been reported by several users on social platforms such as Reddit, Twitter or Facebook.
There are two domains that were spreading this virus and they go by the name of oyomakaomojiya and cievubeataporn. According to Bleeping Computers, these domains have been registered with “cock.li” email account. The company has also mentioned that these email accounts were also used to register many other strange domains, which are probably hosting the same infected file. The IP addresses that are hosting the websites were also previously under the radar for some similar kind of strange domains.
This means that the domains have been registered specifically for spreading malware on the internet and that a group of hackers are behind this operation. What’s strange is that the person that has found the malware has contacted Skype support to inform them about the issue. Skype support has refused to take the responsibility, which is quite strange as this is not the first time when the application is used to spread out this type of malware.
