Caution: bug in Skype forwards messages between two to a third random contact

Caution: bug in Skype forwards messages between two to a third random contact

Do you use often these days? Then they will have to be careful, as there is a little problem so far has not affected many people, but it is quite serious and that you have the team behind Skype working on a quick solution.

The reports of the problem began to reach Skype support forum, where some users warned that some instant messages sent to a particular contact is reenviaba to a third contact in the book, completely at random. One need not look far to realize the serious problem of that can be generated with this, so perhaps that despite the infrequent bug, the company acknowledged receipt of the problem, announcing that they are taking steps to correct it and that “very soon” there will be an update available.

Given the implications it might bring, will be absolutely recommend that everyone download this update, especially those who have already been affected or who for some reason some sensitive information sent through the service. For now, even if it’s a rare bug, we must be very careful what you write on Skype.
