Syrian anti-government activists are being targeted with malicious computer programs seeking to steal data, a digital rights group has said.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) issued a warning about a booby-trapped file posing as an add-on for net phone service Skype.

Anyone caught out by the malicious file would give its creators remote access to their computer.

The EFF said the attack was the latest in a series aimed at Syrian dissidents.
