Skype Leak

Skype has had its moments in security history over the past several years, like the allegations that governments of certain countries have backdoors (not substantiating or denying those here), but now it appears that if you know a Skype username, you can find out the IP address of the user.  Wow.

This is pretty dangerous. I used to use skype on my Work computer, my Mobile phone and my home computer.

Already you can track my movements, if you got my IP. Worse then this most corporate networks would have a firewall and serious Natting. A persons home connection or a public Wifi spot may not have such protection.
