Yeah, someone posted that a couple days ago. I read it. Yeah, Skype is wonderfully secure.
Also, it is a P2P-based service. If you install it in your network, you open your network to that service (SUPERNODE). In many cases, that constitutes a violation of the AUP in many organizations. From the state (U.S.) perspective, there are policies against using state-owned networks for private activities and access. Also, users could be charged on laws related to "theft of state services."
