If you have paid for any part of Skype's services, your credit-card information and billing address may have been accessed as well. If I’m sure that a hacker is controlling my computer and I was online in my Skype account, in a video call to a friend.Have you ever spend a thought (or two) to think about how much people worldwide are running f.e. So best choice: think about what you're communicating via such video calling services, even when you're using your smartphone or i Phone you get spied due to the request you have to confirm before installing a new app.Stay skeptical and keep ya eyes and ears open, Neutral Regards The Sentinel Hi The Sentinel Thanks for you reply.
But the problem here is that it’s much, much worse than that. He can copy your data, your history, your programs, your files, your emails, your pictures; anything on your machine.
He can use your computer to send spam, or hack other computers, or spread malware, or hide his location, or do anything.
And if he’s any good as a hacker, he can do almost all of what I just described without you noticing. That’s why people like me harp so hard on staying safe in the first place.
Your Skype account, like any account online with a username and password, can get hacked.
Hackers may use your account, add unwanted friends to compromise security or interact with other people as you to embed malware in the messages.
