A new security hole has been discovered in Microsoft’s Skype that allows anyone to change your password and thus take over your account. The issue was first posted on a Russian forum two months ago and has been confirmed by The Next Web (we have not linked to any of the blogs or posts detailing the exploit because it is very easy to reproduce).
Update: Skype appears to have pulled its password reset page, stopping this flaw in its tracks (Confirmed, read below for details).

Skype had a gaping security issue that was around for at least two months. This isn't looking like a good Q4 for them.
