Skype Possibly Hacked

Hi All,

I have recently not been able to log onto my Skype account and noticed most of my account details have been changed. So if anyone is using skype support in the next couple of days and gets offensive messages or what ever I apologize as i currently can’t do anything about it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

As always i can still be contacted via the contact form.

    As a successful Asset Store author you probably should keep your Skype private and communicate with customers via a hosted contact form.

    Also when you do you Skype go offline when not using it. Skype is known to be monitored by governments and criminal organizations. Security should improve against criminals but there really is no motive for various agencies to stop monitoring traffic and since a lot of ‘criminal activity’ is actually proxy of various governments and those ‘security flaws’ are actually designed loopholes (think taxes and how big businesses seem to avoid all but token taxes compared to you or I) and well we have a problem.

    You probably should get as slow an internet connection as you can stand and have your computer automatically disconnect from the net after 15 minutes (or 30 minutes idle time). It should not come back on line via an external ping. It you use your computer during regular hours turn off your internet modem when not in use. Try to avoid internet service providers that always issue the same IP address to your modem so that you have a new IP each time you reboot your modem. If you come back & forth to your computer throughout the day, try to remember to take it off line when you go to bed and bring it back on line when you use it the next day. Reboot your modem 2 – 3 times a day if you go back and forth between your computer and other work throughout the day.

    Good luck.

      Thanks for the tips Agro, Unfortunately i have to share my internet connection with a couple of room mates so we always need a good connection. Also the negatives with using a dynamic IP is that many of the addresses they issue have been banned from game servers due to the previous IP user being a stooge. This would impact on some epic BF4 time. pew pew :D
