Hi,

just wondered if anyone has looked into and identified any Skype VoIP 
security issues, from the P2P perspective as opposed to voice security 
perspective.  My understanding is this software is provided by the same 
makers as Kazaa, and that the EULA is particularly broad in its context to 
authorising third parties to connect to your computer.

If anyone has any experience or thoughts with Skype it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tim
