SKYPE

Can anyone tell me whether Messenger has any virus issues, I had heard something about Msm some time ago but don't exactly know what it refered to; also whether Skype is safe to use.
 
My friend uses a hotmail/Messenger account and had Skyped me the other night, when we finished I had a message informing that I had two threats on my system!  
 
Webroot was able to erase these for me (thank you Webroot) but it's a bit worrying that I might get infected everytime I use Skype.
