So my Skype account sent this link to all my contacts.. [Link to "baidu.com" removed.] How did this happen? I don't even think I had Skype running on my desktop when the message went out. This is the 2nd time in about 6 months it is done this type of thing.

Exactly the same. Even time frames. Changing password did nothing. this is one of my links:

Baidu is Xiaomi software.
Same for me as well. Second time it happened, new password not used anywhere else, not logged in on any other machines.
I think someone's got a way to spoof Skype messages, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Got the same problem.... any solution so far? :/ sent the link over 90 people
same for me.
whats going on - i'm getting lots of complaints from my contacts!?
Same happened to me. All contacts got sent a xxxxxx... link at 10:17 UTC time. I have changed my password.
Anything else I can do so this does not happen again?
Some one just did it to me. All my contacts received this xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with custom URL. Had to respond to everyone to let them know my skype account is computerized. I have changed password, hopefully its nothing serious.
I had the same issue, Hopefully Skype team will explain the cause of this issue.
