The number one thing to do in order to prevent this is DO NOT open any files that are coming to you through Skype before you check out what the file names are. If the file name end with .scr or .exe or any strange named files, this is a pretty good indication that you DO NOT want to save this file to your PC just click “Cancel” on the file box.
If you ever get hacked in Skype, you might want to save and print this information.
