Skype Hacked: Source Code Available For Download

Skype Hacked: Source Code Available For DownloadThe source code of Skype, the popular video/voice communication software has been cracked, and the hacker posted the source code in his website.

The feat has been achieved by Efim Bushmanov, a Russian independent research who has used the technique of reverse engineering to crack Skype’s source code.

All this comes after only a few weeks when Microsoft officially announce that it acquired Skype for $8.5 billion dollars.

Although Bushmanov’s goal is to achieve a complete software reversal, which would allow people to create an alternative to Skype, he only published part of the source code to encourage other people willing to spend time and effort in helping him make Skype an open source software.

While the legal terms specified in Skype’s TOS does not allow reverse engineering to access Skype’s source code, both the European Union and the United States have laws that allow it as long as it helps in terms of interoperability and provided that the technology is not patented. That’s one thing Microsoft should consider.
