W32.Skyhoo.Worm will arrive on a computer when a malicious link coming from a Yahoo and Skype instant messaging message was clicked. W32.Skyhoo.Worm will be sent unknowingly by another person whose computer is already infested by this worm. Once on the computer, it will steal contact information and sends the same threat to propagate itself. A backdoor component can also be install by W32.Skyhoo.Worm on the affected computer that will allow the attacker to gain full access via a configured IRC protocol.
