Late last night, Skype sent me an email letting me know that they had successfully changed my email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I should visit my account to review my changes.
Except I didn’t change anything. And What?
The account isn’t mine anymore, it’s now owned by some hacker.
My Skype account was protected with a very long, unique password. So how did the hacker get access to the account and then change my email address to something else to lock me out?
The only logical way we can think of: Skype support gave the account away.
And Now, Skype Won’t Fix the Problem and Give the Account Back
