Skype Looking Into Messaging Bug
ONLINE PRIVACYJuly 17, 2012
Skype is looking into a bug resulting in the voice-Internet service sending instant messages to unintended recipients, CNET News reports. Skype says “in rare circumstances” and stemming from an upgrade last month, users intending to send a message to one contact have found the message has been sent to another, which one user called “a serious breach of privacy.” Skype says it is investigating the matter and hopes to provide a solution soon. “We are rolling out a fix for this issue in the next few days and will notify our users to download an updated version of Skype,” a spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement.
