That link doesn't work for me either but I found the article and it is chilling. The last part says this:
"Back in January, civil rights groups sent an open letter to Microsoft questioning the security of Skype communication since the takeover. The groups behind the letter, which included the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Reporters without Borders expressed concern that the restructuring resulting from the takeover meant that Skype would have to comply with US laws on eavesdropping and would therefore have to permit government agencies and secret services to access Skype communications.
In summary, The H and heise Security believe that, having consented to Microsoft using all data transmitted over the service pretty much however it likes, all Skype users should assume that this will actually happen and that the company is not going to reveal what exactly it gets up to with this data."
Damning of our nation and our total lack of privacy now.
Here's the correct link:
EDIT: I checked the link after posting this comment. It works correctly for me. Let me know if it doesn't for the rest of you.--
