Chinese Skype Software Secretly Logs Political Chat Messages
A Chinese-version of Skype's text messaging and online phone call software secretly stores copies of political messages on servers controlled by Skype's Chinese partner company, according to a watchdog report. Despite company promises that the software offers secure communication, a Canadian researcher found and decrypted more than a million messages, transmitted to company servers, triggered by keywords like "democracy" and "Olympics."
