New version of Skype now harder to detect


Skype blocking companies have been scrambling to update their products after the recent release of a new version of the software that is even harder to detect and block.

The beta of version 3.0 was made available only two weeks ago and, as expected, the client has been re-engineered to make its presence on network traffic tougher to spot, according to leading Skype-blocking outfit iPoque.

There have been a number of subtle but important alterations in 3.0, including a change to the way the client opens encrypted UDP channel to other clients, as well as to the packet lengths themselves. Techworld.com - Security News - New version of Skype now harder to detect
