28 December 2010

Leading internet telephony provider, Skype, finally reported that services have stabilized after global outage that continued for more or less two days. Skype officially has reported the problem was caused by a “software issue” on critical parts of its network.
With Wikileaks and several threats from hackers against businesses that have refused to deal with the ‘famous” organization, there were speculations that Skype’s problems were caused by a malicious attack. Skype responded rather quickly that this was not that case.
A lot of companies all over the world rely on Skype’s services to stay in touch with customers. After recovery Skype offered customers the compensation payment in the form of vouchers.
CEO of Skype stated: "We take outages like this really seriously and apologize for the inconvenience."
In the recent Blog post, Skype published the reasons for the outage.
"If you want to talk to someone, and your Skype app can't find them immediately (for example, because they're connecting from a different location or from a different device) your computer or phone will first try to find a supernode to figure out how to reach them. Under normal circumstances, there are a large number of supernodes available. Unfortunately, today, many of them were taken offline by a problem affecting some versions of Skype."
