I guess something worse is happening, like a very heavy attack on the Skype servers. But i could be wrong. Why do i think so? Look at the extract of the graph copied from http://nyanyan.to/
- The first green upward arrow point from the sudden increase in the speed of downloads, to the sudden decrease of users online.
- The second green downward arrow points to the only few minutes (20?) during which indeed the downloads were almost stopped (by Skype - this seems to confirm their message)!
- The two other green lines are there only to emphasis the changed slope of the download curve (a higher slope meaning more downloads).
I tried to download the Skype client, and i succeeded!
This combination of higher downloads and Skype outage is very weird: this looks like a hacker or a download-BOT is infecting the main Skype servers!
