This morning, Skype for Windows users have been reporting that the latest update for the Skype Windows client is pushing an automatic update with an unwanted payload: the EasyBitsGo game library application as a part of the Extras Manager. Users have also been reporting being locked out of Skype until access to the executable is granted, further frustrating users besides not being warned about the application in the latest update. For its part Skype has responded by disabling and ceasing the update rollout as the software was never meant to install the games included in the executable, leading to issues with uninstallation of the software on affected computers.
