A security researcher has found a critical vulnerability in Microsoft’s Skype that allows an attacker to take full control over the system. Microsoft is aware about the vulnerability since September last year, but hasn’t fixed the issue yet. According to the software giant, a fix for the issue needs a “large code revision”.
