    Yo BHW,

    Just a quick post from me to inform you that there currently is a very big skype vulnerability.
    If someone knows your skype email adress he can really easily reset your password with simply creating a new account with the same email (Skype will let you create more accounts with one email accidently). If they then reset your password they also reset the password of YOUR account.

    (Wont go into more details now because I dont want this post to get deleted).

    Basically what you do to secure your account is...

    IT IS FIXED NOW!


    With kind regards,

    Update:

    Apparently skype took the password request server down and changed the code!

    Everything is safe now :)

    Just checked it myself with a test account and it isnĀ“t possible anymore.


    Woohoo
