Later in the week, a password vulnerability was disclosed in the most famous messenger – Microsoft’s Skype. The vulnerability allowed an attacker to change username and password of a victim’s Skype account by just knowing their email address. Early Friday, Microsoft informed that vulnerability has been resolved.
