    Make sure you are running the latest version of Skype. Sometimes it fails to update and I am numerous versions behind.

    Good to see the MS is bringing Skype to the professional sector.

    Mine is up to date but still security isnt microsoft concern at all...
  7. Seriously my friend, this obsession you have with Microsoft is getting old now. There is nothing Microsoft does that pleases you is there? Every article that even has a hint of the word 'Microsoft' in it, and you're there like a bad rash. You claim to use Linux, and that already speaks volumes about you, and not in a good way! It goes something like this, "Microsoft the evil money sapping conglomerate", right?

    Stop trying to murder people mate I have only tried linux and didnt like it over the past 5yrs I have spent less than a few seconds on linux I use windows 8, I dont know about you but finding someones IP and all their greasy details with just typing their skype username into google is a MASSIVE security flaw to me.

    But its ok if your into no security and no privacy thats cool with me just give me your skype username so I can make sure it takes a few month for you to get on the internet again :)

    Skype is something I've never found a use for yet.

    Oh, please, because you can do so much with a person's IP address except boot them offline or waste resources on a sustained DDoS attack on them. Wait, I forgot you can learn what city they live in as well! Big deal, every website you visit has your IP address. The way I see it, Skype replaced MSN for instant messaging, and is a pretty decent VoIP application. It allows you to communicate far more effectively than MSN IM did, and allows people to circumvent international calling charges, provided they have the Internet speeds to use VoIP without much lag. Whether Microsoft will succeed in this move can't really be determined now, but it's good that they're trying to reach more markets.

    Did you read my post? I didn't say security isn't important, I work in cyber-security and realize its importance more than most. What I did say is that disclosing IP addresses isn't the huge security risk you're making it out to be.
