A new phishing attack allows hackers to gain access to a user’s 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 victim’s incoming call, obtain a 
Skype-To-Go Number, and/or grant an attacker the ability to access victim’s 
voicemail, speed dial, and outbound calling via Spoofed Caller-ID.

It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.
