    Re: Backdoor in Skype

    Skype works just fine for me, so I don't have any worries. But then again, I'm not a paedophile or a terrorist.

    Has nothing to do with people's rights to privacy.

    Re: Backdoor in Skype

    Just wanted to link to this article that was published a couple of days ago. It has been proved without a shadow of doubt that chats over Skype are monitored and that calls can be wiretapped:

    NSA taps Skype chats, newly published Snowden leaks confirm

    Skype audio and video chats, widely regarded as resistant to interception thanks to encryption, can be wiretapped by American intelligence agencies, according to a new report in The Guardian. The report appears to contradict claims by Microsoft that it has not provided the contents of Skype communications to the government.

    and: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013...ser-data/print


    In light of this, the challenge for those of us concerned with privacy is to help friends and collegues set up and install programs such as Jitsi.
