Re: My skype account has been hacked !!!!

Uhm a friend of mine got his acc hacked. What happened was the "hacker" logged in his skype and asked his girlfriend some inappropriate pics which she did give coz she thought it was my friend who is apparently her boyfriend. Was just wondering, is there any way we could trace the IP address of the "hacker"? Would skype actually help him out?

Re: My skype account has been hacked !!!!

All concerned parties need to change their account passwords immediately.

If the user name of the "hacker" is known, the incident may be reported to Skype Customer Service: contact customer service

Skype does not have the facility to provide IP addresses; the issue must be addressed by local law enforcement.

Re: My skype account has been hacked !!!!

I really like Skype, when it works correctly.

I don't understand hackers, I hope they all get caught & punished.

I'd probably use something else other than Skype, especially for buisness... Too bad my contacts seem to have no clue.
