This is not an ideal day to start a new year huh? When I woke up today, the tech news had this bad news for Skype users "Skype hacked". Okay, how many of you uses Skype to communicate with your family here and abroad? I bet most of us did and it maybe one time or on a daily basis but, the frequency doesn't really matter. The cyber attack has led to access Skype's social media properties including Skype's Twitter. Is there something to be alarmed? Now, what?
Skype posted this tweet in their twitter account: " You may have noticed our social media properties were targeted today. No user info was compromised. We are sorry for the inconvenience." Now we all can breathe and relax. While you chat to your family on Skype, knowing it is private and all, just remember that there are possibilities of others spying on you. Who knows really right? You will be unlucky if you will be randomly selected.
Do we have to get paranoid? Don't be! I wouldn't! Do not let this "concern" run your life. Just be very careful though every time you use the Internet, open your email or browse the web. Other than that, enjoy chatting to your family and friends on Skype. Your info is not compromised!
