This morning I was notified that Skype needed third-party access
to an executable called easybitsgo.exe, and I was quite suspicious
because I knew I had not installed in applications recently and
saw no other dialog boxes with information about this app. I did a
virus scan immediately thinking my system may have been
over-ridden with malware similar to those fake anti-virus apps.
It turns out the program is legit and was actually installed via
Skype itself. After doing a quick check, it seems the EasyBits
company produces a number of game apps and is supported by many
major brands including HP, Dell, Acer and Skype among others,
however I did not give a care since I was not interested in having
such program installed on my machine. Finally, after checking the
Skype forums, it turns out many users reported a similar
8.5 billion dollars.
