The link is to a short analysis of Skype security.
I long ago removed Skype from all our computers and will not reinstall it until I'm satisfied it is not a risk. They seem to be working on it and hopefully that day will come. Call me skeptical, if you will.
Joe and Riley are using Skype to their satisfaction, as are others we all know. I'm somewhat more paranoid than they are (and quite okay with that).
