‘Allo ‘Allo! – Bug with Skype causes Private Messages to be sent to Unintended Contacts

Bug with Skype

Skype Click2Call Bug


Users of the popular communications program Skype are advised to use the program with caution. Skype – owned by Microsoft, just released an update for their Windows and Linux versions of the program to correct a bug that may cause a private and perhaps confidential message to be sent to unintended contacts in one’s Contact List.

Apparently, this happens when the program crashes when you’re in the the middle of a message. Restarting the crashed program causes the er, “unexpected” behavior.

Skype’s Click2Call plugin was also the source of considerable frustration with a client of ours here at TEKHELPER. We discovered after much hair-pulling that it disables the, “Paste Special” option in Microsoft Word and Excel.

Pasting content into an Office document with the Click2Call plugin enabled results in the loss of all formatting.

Updating to the latest version of Skype should fix problems with Click2Call plugin and the messaging issues.
