This post is not for technical gurus and hackers, everyone with a Skype can crash it. By sending a simple message the application crashes badly for both the sender and the receiver and it needs re-installation. This bug affects some new versions of Skype. The message is not a massive amount of characters but a simple short message. If you want to try it, send “http://:” and voila! I would never believe that such a bug exists in such a popular application for so long time. I believe Microsoft developers will try to blame the initial software developers that wrote the legacy code!
