    Skype.exe being reported as a possible root-kit


      We have quite a few of our users reporting LandDesk AV pop up notices for Skype.exe


      The text is:

      Malware Found

      A potential Root-Kit Virus was found, quarantined, but not deleted.  Contact your administrator for instryuctions on how to delete this virus.


      C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone

      on 64 bit systems its Program Files(x86)


      File name:


      Virus Name:


      I have searched the internet, this community site, and the Kaspersky site for information and none is availaible.


      Is this a real virus?  A false Positive? or an issue with the AV scanner?
