Skype collects Linux user data too
VOICE OVER IP outfit Skype has been caught snooping on parts of your PC operation again.
We already reported how Skype was taking a deep interest in the workings of the BIOs of Windows users, now it seems that the outfit is snooping on Linux users too.
At the Skype forum, a bloke called ZaphodB set up an AppArmor profile to isolate skype from the rest of his system. Much to his horror he found that Skype kept asking to see all the details of his Firefox software and its plug-ins.
