I can,t take risk for my ip address. All my working transactions are online. This is the reason why i started using hide ip software utility. Now i can do my work freely and use skype with it.
jakibea, all VPN software will hide your IP. You could use as well TOR but you need to do some firewall rules changes to make sure skype won't go around it (mimic a VPN). But we need out of box solution as a lot of users use skype.
It is a huge problem I have an avid Ddoser attacking me daily now since he can pull my ip just from my skype id at this point I am going to have to make a new skype account since I can't change my username now

Hello, for 2 days ago i got ddosed because someone found my room mate username on skype.
Hope you can fix this soon, concider someone made this post for over a year ago.
It is now 31.12.2013 and this thing is still going strong!
Get your **bleep** together
More and more people are experiencing being DDoS'ed because of this
Apparently a DDoS'er just said in his twitter 'The easiest way for someone to look up someone's IP is through Skype resolvers'
Seriously thinking about wiping out my Skype account, this problem is very serious.
The problem with fixing this is that Skype is a pier to pier system, meaning that Skype users connect to other Skype users directly. In most system you connect to a server to the user.
Direct connection like Skype allow easy Resolving.
This system is hard-coded into Skype, which means a good amount of Skype would have to be recoded to work with a server.
For now, I sugest using some sort of proxy.
