Skype patches critical flaws

Skype users are being urged to upgrade to the latest version of the popular Internet telephony client, thanks to a number of critical flaws in the software that were disclosed Tuesday by Skype's maker, Skype Technologies. If exploited, two of the flaws could allow attackers to take over a Skype user's system. These flaws affect a number of Windows versions of the software ranging between Versions 1.1 to 1.4, the statement said.
