Nothing to worry about here: It's just the output of the "/help" chat command. If you start a chat message with that it will output all available commands.

To answer your question: Skype chat is encrypted end to end, so there is no way to manipulate it in between. See here: http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/security/detailed-security/#encryption

That message you received was a help message automatically generated by the Skype System account. The message contains all the Skype commands that can be used in a chatt. That message can be generated by an incorrect Skype command or by typing /help. All Skype commands begin with /. I've generated that message before. Noone hacked your chatt, that was an automatic message. Did you type / before the text in a message you were trying to type? If so, there's your answer.
