Skype may or may not allow police access to calls now, it won't say
As governments around the world finally get around to updating surveillance laws to let them 'snoop' through your online correspondence, Skype is keeping its cards close to its chest.
Hackers have reported that Skype has made some changes to its architecture that will allow it to be more easily jacked into for nefarious purposes or monitoring crime suspects' communications.
This doesn't exactly jive with Skype's previous assertions that it would not conduct wiretaps, partly due to the encryption and specific P2P architecture it uses. Although Skype has said that this update is all for the betterment of user experience and not to do with keeping an eye on what users are saying, it is reluctant to comment any further.
