To put it in a nutshell, Microsoft did not confirm that they are not snooping in on your Skype conversations, but what troubles us is the fact that neither did Microsoft deny on playing the role of Big Brother and have the capability of listening in to what you and your sweetheart, separated by thousands of miles and having this thing called “love” and modern day technology to help you communicate in real time via Skype.
Should the ability for Microsoft to actually eavesdrop on your Skype conversations, then it is a safe bet that large enterprises will look out for other VoIP services that do not take this route as a matter of policy and security. Skype had long been touted as virtually impossible to intercept, thanks in part to strong encryption and complex peer-to-peer network connections.
Things have turned sour recently, as hackers claimed that Skype changed its architecture earlier this spring in order for it to make life easier for law enforcement agencies to intercept one’s calls. Skype claimed that the restructure was an upgrade, and it is totally different from carrying out surveillance. What do you think of the situation – does it bother you if Microsoft allows law enforcement agencies to listen in on your conversations?
