    BEWARE! Don't give out your skypes to random people!

    Have had two newbies asking me for my skype, probably with same intentions as why Kylae's was hacked into.

    Be aware: Others may be able to steal your account by knowing information about your Skype account, such as several of your contacts. Additionally just by knowing your Skype name and adding you via several accounts they could know your contacts (them) and steal your account. Be careful of what information you share with who. If you suddenly have several people add you for no reason, you may be a target of account theft.

    Apparently there's multiple programs that have been made to automate the process of hacking someone's skype already.... that's ridiculous. DON'T USE SKYPE TO TRADE UNTIL THIS IS PATCHED.

    People asking for your skype username usually don't have anything bad. Katia's skype most likely got SE'd. There's been many skype hacking's from another forum because of shitty Skype Support where they just reset it. So don't give out much info of who your contacts are,your skype purchases,latest calls etc. But giving your skype username out your U/N could always be resolved.
