    Well, it's not like the government wasn't already spying on Skype. All this is guys is another patent MS can make money off of and use in yet another of their "patent suits" down the line. MS would have you believe they created everything that exists on the Internet. It's purely a business move for MS.

    From the Patent :eek:

    That's a heck of a LOT more than just monitoring/recording etc ! In other words you would NOT be able to trust your connection :thumbd:

    Having briefly looked at the Patent, i've spotted a GLARING error in it which "could" lead to it being invalidated :D I won't make it public, just yet anyway, but will save it to pass on to for eg the EFF ;) LotsaLulz :)

    Encryption like end-to-end? I believe Zfone works with skype. It is developed by Phil Zimmerman of PGP fame. I have used it with Ichat and it works great.


    This is the last time I ever use skype. I have always been wary of it but now I will use Redphone and Zfone for VOIP.:thumb:

    Probably is. Take an old router (or set up an untangle box) and watch every thing a fresh windows install connects to on start up. Something tells me thats not all updates and such. I usually block all that stuff (all MS IP's and Gov IP's) (besides updates) at the router level just in case.
