Windows 7: Skype

25 Nov 2009   #11

The privacy issues are heightened when the chat/voip programs source code is not published and the EULA prevents decompiling and disseminating details of what makes a program tick.

This is especially so when the software relies on it's own server gateways to route every byte of traffic as big brother can theoretically sniff packets at these servers - and if there's a decryption algorithm to hand then life's easy for the eavesdroppers.

You can find open source programs which run on a peer to peer basis, so do not traverse any central servers (and whose code can be seen of course) but they invariably require installing on all machines using the facility and can be tricky to set up initially.

Personally I wouldn't touch Skype with a bargepole...
