Skype Data Breach - Change your passwords.

Recommended Posts

I don't see a topic on this yet, so here goes.

Apparently, Skype recently got hacked and tons of data was leaked. That includes passwords.

A friend of mine already had his password stolen and a bot sent malware links to all of his contacts, including myself.

Change password asap, and if any of your contacts sends a suspicious link, do not click.

I dunno how many accounts were successfully spambotted, but I do know that my friend's account was one of them

So yeah, better safe than sorry.

Well, it won't effect me since I already had a database error and lost everything, lmfao.

But sure, I'll give it a go all the same, why not?

I don't know about you, but I'm a Nigerian prince who has money locked up in an account. If you help me by sending some to unlock it, I'll give you half. It seems to be a select few accounts that were affected, otherwise they'd be issuing warnings to everyone.

If I'm not misreading, the article says the passwords were stolen through spoofing, (right?), so careful users shouldn't be having issues outside of any malicious messages they may get through their contacts?

(I'll still change my password, haven't switched it up recently anyway.)
