Skype dispels outage rumors, still restoring service
Yesterday there were a lot of rumors floating around as to what had caused the outage. It could have been a Microsoft Update. But it turns out that not everyone affected had installed the update. It could have been aliens. OK, probably not.
Here's the official list of what didn't go wrong, as provided by Skype:
- The outage had nothing to do with Wednesday's planned maintenance.
- The outage was not caused by any sort of malicious attack.
- The Skype system did not crash.
- The outage had nothing to do with alien invaders (yeah, Skype didn't mention this one, but we just wanted to quash any rumors before they get started).
