If it's of any use.....I live in Britain. Skype was recently reported as insecure by Secunia. Having tried the relevant solution...the result was that Skype was supposedly up to date....but still not "155". In the end I uninstalled/removed the program via Revouninstaller, and downloaded the new version via the Computeractive site, successfully. I'd been previously advised that my security settings prevented me from updating. I think I'm finding my own way around !!

Last edited on 15th Mar, 2010 09:20 Hi,

You need version 4.2.0.155 to be secure according to Secunia rules. This is in accordance with the Secunia advisory 38908, accessible from here:

http://secunia.com/advisories/38908/ (The info in the advisory says "4.2.0.1.55, but it the file it's represented as 4 numbers, so that's what the rule matches).

Our download link points to the offered download form Skype. We strive to provide localized downloads, but this is not always possible.

Hope this helps.
