Skype Vulnerability Allows Intruders, Fix Coming Soon

The popular Voice Over IP service, Skype, has a serious security issue that can allow a hacker to gain access into a contact’s account. The guy who discovered the serious flaw is Levent Kayan, and he claims that the vulnerability can even make the computer itself prone to a cyber attack.

Skype’s Recent Sign-in Problems

Skype is having problems once again. The voice-calling company had another outage, affecting consumers globally. Although Skype has had bigger problems before, the issue that stands is that many users had problems of signing in and making calls. Although this may not be a big deal for your average consumer, this is a huge deal for business users.

There were also reports of the Skype app crashing but apparently is not related to issues with Windows or Mac.

Rumor: Facebook Plans To Buy Skype

A close source to Facebook has told Reuters that Facebook plans to buy Skype at $4 billion, which is a lot more money than what it’s worth, about $1 billion. Consider this a game of monopoly when you already own 2 orange properties and you’re trading for the third orange property. The other player won’t sell you that third orange property to create your monopoly unless it is for a high price. How does four times the value sound? Sounds just like Monopoly to me.

TelTub is offering a new service called gHome that turns your free Google Voice account into home phone service. The service works similar to Vonage VoIP but it’s a lot cheaper since it only costs $5/month, with the first month free.

Pamela Adds Recording And Voicemail To Skype

More than a utility for making free calls over the net, Skype has become an essential communications tool for our age. It’s not perfect, however, as Skype doesn’t have voicemail and call recording features. Purchasing a call plan will give you voicemail access but Pamela, a third-party Skype extension gives both missing features for free.

Pamela Basic and Pamela Professional both give the Skype user recording and voicemail functions. However, Pamela Basic limits call recordings to 15 minutes. Included with Pamela Basic is a voice recording tool that can be used for recording voice clips. Pamela’s voicemail function is set to activate 15 seconds after the phone rings and Skype is in other modes except online. A custom voicemail message can be recorded through the options menu in Pamela.

Pamela is not associated with Pamela Anderson, however, is hard not to do a search on the Internet and not come up with searches related to the blonde Playboy model.
