Solved! Go to Solution.
Nothing to worry about here: It's just the output of the "/help" chat command. If you start a chat message with that it will output all available commands.
To answer your question: Skype chat is encrypted end to end, so there is no way to manipulate it in between. See here: http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/security/detailed-security/#encryption
That message you received was a help message automatically generated by the Skype System account. The message contains all the Skype commands that can be used in a chatt. That message can be generated by an incorrect Skype command or by typing /help. All Skype commands begin with /. I've generated that message before. Noone hacked your chatt, that was an automatic message. Did you type / before the text in a message you were trying to type? If so, there's your answer.
hello im also worried about people hacking into my skype convosations if someone has id just complain to the people here at skype id try call the person who sentyou the message or just compleatly ignor it make sure to go on your privacy settings and change them so that only people in your contact list can contact you also just a quick question how was youusing skype was you on a windows computor or mac and also does your computor have an uptodate security softwear
