Noted by Engadget – citing a thread on Skype’s support forums, some of Skype users claim that two messages were sent irrelevantly to the wrong contact, while for one an entire conversation was sent. Skype confirmed the issue this morning, noting that the issue was “rare” and it would be issuing a fix soon: “We are aware that in rare circumstances IM’s between two contacts could be sent to an unintended third contact. We are rolling out a fix for this issue in the next few days and will notify our users to download an updated version of Skype.” Just remember till the time, you might want to be careful what you IM.
