M$ talking, that "supernodes don't transit voice traffic" - this is bull**bleep**. They do. 

 

Supernodes also have the ability to relay the VoIP traffic if the callers cannot form a P2p connection.

sorry, but you don't know what you are talking about

 

supernodes DO NOT carry voip traffic -- they help peers find each other and they help negotiate the P2P connection (iow, they assist NAT)

 

any packet sniffer will readily show that this is the case

 

and supernodes DO NOT act as relay nodes either -- that function is performed by other peer clients, not supernodes

 

it is commonplace for qualified peer nodes to relay voice traffic for others, but it is still encrypted end-to-end (no opportunity for eavesdropping)

 

it is NOT easy to be a supernode -- in fact most, if not all supernodes are now Microsoft-hosted servers, so it may now be impossible for a client to be promoted to supernode status, but that does change the fact that these supernodes DO NOT carry voip traffic, and never have

This, exactly. I contacted my ISP, had my IP changed, and refrained from using Skype for 2-3 weeks and the problem was gone..

My work required that I participate in a Skype conference a few days ago and the DDoS issue was back within hours of signing in.

Of course I could make a new account but after years of acquainting with people through one Skype account it's extremely inconvenient to have to change due to a security flaw that shouldn't exist in the first place.

Finally! Someone who understands me, same thing happened to me, I changed my ISP. Couple hours later going on, he ended up DDoSing me again. Which was soo irrating.

But finally, I have come to the conclusion to make a new skype account due to the fact of me continuously getting DDoSed and I was hopeless, able to do nothing at all...

But please Skype Staff, please try to fix this glitch... I have many contacts on this skype, and am unable to login to it due to the fact, i wil get DDoS'ed couple hours after I login.

Please fix this!!
