Global Skype Outage Halts Communications

Skype, the internet based messaging and telephony service giant, went down this morning and has been down all day. Skype's CEO, Tony Bates, issued an apology, saying that the matter was being taken very seriously and was being thoroughly investigated. He had said that malicious attack was not being ruled out as a problem cause and he put his estimate of the foregone calls at about 10 million.
