Skype Outage

August 16, 2007
Skype outageSkype is experiencing a major outage. My fellow TMC co-workers noticed it late Wednesday when they couldn't IM fellow co-workers. TMC's Dave Rodrqiguez told me that he went home for the day, signed into Skype from home and was bombarded with a ton of Skype IM messages that didn't go through earlier. I checked Skype's home page but no mention there. I headed over the the Skype heartbeat page and found that that there are indeed experiencing an outage that is still happening today (Thursday). Skype claims the outage is due to a software issue. Many TMCers are upset they can't IM their fellow coworkers and their outside clients. Amazing how dependent we're become on Skype for our business.

Some users are able to connect to the Skype network but then are quickly disconnected just minutes later. According to Skype, "We expect this to be resolved within 12 to 24 hours.” This has to be the longest Skype outage ever.

I'll find out more about the outage and post the details later. Some theories are floating around that the major Microsoft updates that were released yesterday could have something to do with the Skype outage. My Windows Vista PC had like 6 new patches yesterday. I believe Windows XP also had a ton of patches yesterday as well. Since Skype is a P2P network that relies on other peers for the network to function properly, it's possible a Microsoft update is causing a conflict.

Re: Skype Down

Yes, the monthly Malware issue from Microsoft can be a major problem!

Re: Skype Down

Saw this on another site:
QUOTE: Skype's Villu Arak responded to all the rumors as to why the Skype network went down.
It's not due to any Microsoft patch(es) or any hacker attacks. Just some boring reason about an algorithm deficiency. END QUOTE
