Your Antivirus and Firewall should take care of protecting your computer. I don't know of anyone having a security problem with Skype. Just don't give out personnal info.
Hope this helps. Bud

WHY your microphone headset have problem in skype



i have read some article in the internet saying that in US they are experiencing server down....

skype is one of them.. maybe that is the reason you are experiencing problems in your peripherals...not your camera is the problem... the problem is in the net..

The latest news is that skype is down today, Janaury 21. There have been some problems with login, When you try to login by entering your username and password, you are not able to login. The skype is down since quite some hours. The reason for the problem is not yet known. People have started posting the updates and news on twitter. No one knows when the skype problem will be resolved or how much time will be taken for the issue to be resolved.

IM messages not going through


1) If you use Windows XP/Vista etc. firewall go to: Start > Settings > Security Center > Windows Firewall > Exceptions > Thick the "Skype" in the list, of if it isn't there click "Add Program..." > Select from the list or if it isn't there click "Browse..." > Navigate to the C:Program FilesSkypeSkype.exe (or something similar) > Ok
2) If you don't have Windows Firewall enabled, but use Antivirus/Internet Security Suite/Firewall software, go to this program, find the firewall settings and Skype to exceptions.
3) If your computer is on the work/school network, the network administrator has blocked access port to Skype - you should either ask your administrator or use Skype via this web interface: http://imo.im

We're having some problems with our sign in server, so you may not be able to sign in to the Skype application or to your account as normal.
[2009/01/21@1746UTC] If you're already signed in to the Skype application on your computer or mobile phone, you should be able to call/IM/etc as normal. This is only affecting people who aren't already signed in.
[2009/01/21@1752UTC] Our forums are experiencing heavy traffic and so access may be slower than usual. Apologies! For more updates, watch this space or follow @skype on Twitter.
