Re: FBI tapping skype calls

in my pure humble opinion, possibly with hign-end advanced tools (which is most likely not commercially available), it may be possible to tap phone calls, which may include Skype calls.  but of course unless you are a high profiled, controversial, highly suspicious person, you should not worry about such possibilities.  I think as of now, it is indeed only the government/law-enforcement bodies who have the capability or autority to do such, it's not an everyday thing.

Re: FBI tapping skype calls

having a back-door into the program is a series security flaw and this should be addressed by Microsoft immediately considering that this is used by international clients not only USA citizens..Illegally monitoring skype calls should be a serious concern for everyone.FBI has jurisdiction over the USA not the whole world.My concern also includes the fact that the FBI could easily access and exploit this backdoor, who else can can exploit this security flaw without due process ofv the law

Hi i think this kind of Idea it really  good to catch a Criminal online, but they should only do this for the suspecius user, so if you are clean Skyp user  you have nothing to worry.

 

like I have a very serius problem right now and I think I really need a help from the US  Authority.
