Skype users: beware (silver needle in the skype)

<< < (7/8) > >>

just posted:

Skype Technologies has updated its popular Skype Internet telephony software to fix a security bug that could expose sensitive data.

The flaw could let an attacker construct a Skype hyperlink which, when clicked on by the target, sends a file from the victim's computer to another Skype user, the company said in a security alert published Friday.

Sounds good!
Hope that has fixed all the problems... I guess we can expect an addendum to the PDF exploring whether the fixes are sufficient. I hope they are :)

skype is not their property,and if u agree with that the person who said that skype's software is their property, then ur house is not ur propety or apartment, ur tv is not ur property, ur carpet, car, cat, dog, bathroom, towels, etc.. and most importantly the CLOTHES on ur back and SHoes on ur feet is not ur property that means the people who built these can LEGALLY come right up and Take ur shoes of ur feet, take ur house/apartment, tv, carpet bathroom, car, cat, dog, towels, the clothers on ur back, 'cause its BASICALLY NOT URS, U DIDN'T BUILD IT... GET IT... :Thmbsup:

oh let me clarify the CODE TO SKYPE is SKYPES property, but once its on ur computer the SOFTWARE that u donloaded/bought is urs to do whatever u want....even disassemble it if u like now if someone claims they built the code and is wrong (hey other people have been ripped off by others due to many saying they build something and the person who did patent it patented it with lies claiming they did it when they didn't as this has happened before and is still with many corporations engaging in lawsuit after lawsuit is actually themselvs THIEVES) so I cannot verify if the Originator of skype built it themselves or just patented it first..considering their ACUTAL code they build it with was actually a used one and is patented so TECHNICALLY they don't own it either so that means TECHNALLY every software built from C++ C, etc... is not their own work...U have to DEEP THINK and DEEPLY UNDERSTAND to get this.. :)

For my two pennuth and a slight aside.
I still think it is incredibly strange that any program can be copyrighted.
Surely then every program ever written in C++ violates the first program to use:

    cout << endl;  :D

There are only finite ways to do certain things on a computer within programming language constraints.
So there will be repeated blocks of code in almost every program on your computer.

Sorry, just thought this was funny.

Donationware is the way forward, or Open Source.
If people like your stuff they'll buy it, download it or donate towards it.  :Thmbsup:

I don't see a problem with copyrighting software & requiring payment. We live in a capitalistic world, socialism (ufortunately?) never worked out where it was tried implemented. Like it or not, money's what makes the world go round, and without it, many programs wouldn't be written :(
