Security of video chatting through skype?

Hi friends,


May I know the security level of video chatting in skype under windows?


1.Is there any chance to leake the video to a third user ?

2. Is there any similar issue reported due to loop holes in skype software(for example:hacking into the personal video converstaion between two persons) unlike the careless usage of the account?

3.Is there any added security features needed to be added to prevent the said issue?


All replies are much appreciated.


Many kind regards,


Novel Tourist
