Skype Source Code Leaked

Over the past few weeks we have been seeing many different high profile names becoming victim to hackers. One of the latest appears to be Skype the well known voice messaging and internet phone system. The attack has seen 3 torrent files being released which include a reversed engineered copy of the skype protocol, the source development kit(sdk) and needed runtime and de-obfuscated, unpacked Skype 5.5 and 5.9 binaries for Windows.
