Rude message hack?

Casual Tourist

Skype rude hack..JPG

Someone appears to have accessed my account to send rude messages to some of my contacts. Can anyone advise how I can stop this? I know it wasn't me or my family as I was otherwise engaged on Christmas Day!

Hello and welcome to the Skype Community.

1. Remove the entity which sent you the virus.

2. Change your password immediately.

3. Power down, wait 5 minutes and reboot Skype


TIME ZONE - US EASTERN. LOCATION - PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA.

I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac

If my advice helped to fix your issue please mark it as a solution to help others.
Please note that I generally don't respond to unsolicited Private Messages. Thank you.
