Skype catches rare bug that sends messages to incorrect addresses from your contacts list
Even after Skype confirmed the problem, said it occurred rarely, and promised that a software update would soon be coming to exterminate the bug, others continued to complain about entire conversations being sent to a random third party in the sender's contacts list. Has this happened to you? The good news is that Skype seems to be all over this. If an IM you sent on Skype fell into the wrong hands, let us know by leaving a comment in the box below.

If it contains a Software Update, clearly must be targeted for a certain platform, Am I wrong?

In related news, why doesn't Skype make SMS free, or at least a free part of their unlimited US calling (landline, mobile) with dedicated phone number?
SMS is so cheap on the wholesale/corporate side. But SMS is only available to consumers on a per-text basis through Skype.

No no no no no, Skype can't detect the webcam on my phone, my laptop or even the one I bought......That's why I use boocam...
