Skype roll out hotfix in coming days

Skype has been experiencing a bug where sending an IM to a contact may go to another recipient. Being wary on what you say on Skype will be prudent this week.

Clients affected by the bug are:
  • Skype 5.10 for Windows
  • Skype 5.8 for Mac
  • Skype 4.0 for Linux
  • Skype 1.2 for Windows Phone

  • The hot fix will address the following issue outlined by Skype:
    Skype client crashes during a Skype IM session, which may in some cases result in the last IM entered or sent prior to the crash being delivered to a different IM contact after the Skype client is rebooted or logged in as a new user.

    Full Details of the bug and all details can be found here.
