    Skype users have discovered a rather nasty bug in the app. Sending the characters ?http://:? (without the quotes) crashes Skype, and receiving a message with those characters makes it crash any time you try to sign in again.

    I've decided to send this to anyone who spams me with their service advertisements on Skype.

    OK, I am adding you now, and sending you that so that you will lose all your biz! :D Ha ha!

    Lol jk, but I seriously want to test this shit. :D

    Tried, and it didnt crash by skype, but just got a memory address violation error.Not sure if the message went through so it crashes the other guy's too. Else, its pointless. :p

    make sure that you don't send it to yourself, otherwise it's foolproof

    sounds similar to the iphone crash, only i actually get how people found the bug on skype

    the string that people use to crash the iphone is super weird...

    it'll be fixed pretty soon.
