Vanilla Skype

27.07.2008 16:14

This is old news (dated June 2006), but I just stumbled upon it and it may be interesting to some Skype users I know.

Vanilla Skype is a title of a talk given by Fabrice Desclaux and Kostya Kortchinsky at RECON 2006. You can get slides from the net (part 1, part 2) and they tell a pretty fascinating story about how far Skype will got to prevent you from messing with their software and their P2P network.

With the recent talks of backdoors in this particular piece of software, I can't help but think that with all that obfuscation and protection against reverse engineering they must have something to hide.
