If you are interested in using Skype this news, he recently found an exploit which can be used by other Skype users to discover their local and remote IP addresses in. A note posted on the blog skype-open-source has revealed the details of this exploit.
Unfortunately the process of using this exploit is quite simple. First, a person can download a hacked version of SkypeKit and then change some registry keys. Then all that person has to do is to try to add a new contact in the program Skype. Recipient data revealed when you click the User Information Card Skype. Not even necessary to send a confirmation of contact for the user, which means that he or she will not be aware that they are watching their IP addresses.
This method could be used to determine the country of origin of a Skype user and know the city, next to which ISP has that user. It could also be used by hackers to go after a particular team. However, it seems that only works if a Skype user is online at the time the request is made. We have contacted Skype to give us information about this vulnerability and if they have plans to fix it.

As I always say, the use of free software is not a technical problem if not ethical, that is the detail as would the famous Cantinflas. If you could bring free software into a mathematical formulation, would be as follows:
S oftware Royalty = (Freedom + Sovereignty + Ethics) ^ Consciousness
But in terms of media power is concerned, we can not deny that global proprietary software houses manage them very well [have the resources], denigrating and underestimating the free software movement and sometimes terrorizing the population to prevent its use. With the development of free software better quality and more successful communication strategies, free software has become a major headache for digital jailers and hegemonic. It is no coincidence that large corporations like Google, IBM and Sun have migrated much of its technology platform to free software [GNU / Linux, Python, Ruby, MySql], supporting or taking advantage of the free software movement worldwide to improve their business models . If you want to know the strategies and practices can watch Microsoft monopoly called Halloween Documents to get an idea.
When I analyze the business strategies of proprietary software, I start to realize a constant: the phase of user rights, and therefore digital incarceration, let's put it like this, when we buy or give us a pair of shoes, we can use at will, after long use, we can send them to change the sole or dye them, maybe give them to a brother or acquaintance you need them, at the last pair of shoes is ours and we can do whatever we want with them. Is it the same with proprietary software?, Then obviously not, first of all do not buy proprietary software, as we can not give it away, or lend, or adapt, much less copy, so I really do not buy only what you ask on loan to the software company [a loan that is very expensive by the way], to the end when you go to a store and buy a proprietary software, what you're really buying is the case, with its beautiful and well thought out designs that attract attention of users., for anything you are buying software as the final can not do anything with it, anything you do with something that really was yours.
To take an obvious example for all, now there have been efforts to promote open formats and interfaces that enhance interoperability between systems from different manufacturers. In contrast to this Office takes its latest version of the form (. Docx,. Pptx,. Etcx) which not only restricts the interoperability with other office suites like OpenOffice if not additional to this conditions the same package compatibility between its Office of previous versions [+ $ $ $] leaving organizations vulnerable and tied to a technology that expires very quickly just for more money. Not to mention the restrictive and exclusive technologies Apple with its audio and video devices that force you to use just something that is well identified with the rotten apple [it's my way or the highway]
Choose examples to explain the disadvantages that a country like ours to use proprietary software. I go with another example imagine we have all the digitized data of the birth of a country under the Office format, [so sure = S] while we're on good terms with Microsoft and paying the license we can make use of OUR information, but imagine disaster would happen if this information quedase kidnapped and therefore unavailable, for a reason as simple as we decided to change office solution [migration problems in sight] or simply are included in the blacklist of the axis of evil, as is well described in this article, ie free software is a matter of sovereignty and independence no cost. There are other interesting and innovative ways to explain the concepts of free software and copyleft, such as the project OpenCola
