    2 questions:

    1. Does this only affect Skype on Windows, or are android, iOS, linux systems with skype also at risk?

    2. What security measures should I take against this? (fwiw, my adroid phone doesn't have AV or firewall on it because it's low end so I can't afford the resource hit on it).
