It would seem that there is currently a virus/trojan being disseminated via Skype. It is sent as a link to a picture on the internet, if you receive any links in Skype please confirm that it was intentionally sent by that contact and that it is genuine before proceeding to open any files.
The message will point to a server called and will appear to point to a picture.

   ---:" After being run the worm displays an image, usually "Soap Bubbles". This image is a part of the Windows OS (wallpaper), according to F-Secure. The worm then installs itself to the system and creates several startup keys for itself in the Registry. When active, the worm sends messages to all Skype Contacts of the infected computer's user."
