A new phishing attack allows hackers to gain access to a users Skype client and
then proxy outbond calls. The technique is called SkypeSkrayping. Using
either an inline frame or image tag, attackers could add a Specific Call Forwarding
Number, grant attacker ability to receive the victims incoming call, obtain a
Skype-To-Go Number, and/or grant an attacker the ability to access victims
voicemail, speed dial, and outbound calling via Spoofed Caller-ID.
