Yesterday, many Android users were shocked to discover that the mobile version of Skype contained some pretty serious security flaws making users’ personal information vulnerable to a simple hack. Skype is making no denials, taking responsibility and admitting that a serious security flaw was coded into the application. The company offered no immediate solution to the problem, but offered that they are “working quickly” on a fix for deployment.

The only other device the company had to offer was to be wary of the third party apps you install for the time being, as it would through this means that a hacker would obtain personal information from within Skype. Now the tough question: would you rather have a secure version of Skype or Skype with video released first?
