    Skype

    Anyone else get this email? It seems pretty genuine.. as the links are genuine , but it's also strange.

    Dear share.skype.com user,

    We are upgrading share.skype.com so that the system used to sign in to
    the site is better integrated with the main Skype.com user sign-in
    system. You used your Skype Name and password to sign in to
    share.skype.com previously to participate in discussions and use
    personalized content, and you will continue to do so.

    Because of changes in the secure password storage system, we would
    like all share.skype.com users to update their Skype password to
    ensure their continued privacy.

    During the next 24 hours, we will be resetting the passwords of all
    affected Skype Names. In order to sign in to Skype the first time
    after this reset, you should simply follow the procedures for
    recovering a lost password. Just go here and follow the instructions:
    http://www.skype.com/go/forgotpassword

    Remember that Skype will never contact you to ask for your password.

    WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

    Just go here to get your new Skype password:
    http://www.skype.com/go/forgotpassword

    If you have trouble getting it from there, please
    submit a Customer Service ticket at this address:
    http://support.skype.com

    Alternatively, you can e-mail to support 'at' skype.net, to reset your
    password.

    HOW DO I KNOW THIS E-MAIL IS NOT FAKE?

    We have recently seen a lot of Skype-related faked e-mail. You should
    always be careful about such e-mails. Remember, Skype will never
    contact you to ask for your password. To show you that this e-mail is
    valid and from Skype, a copy of this mail is posted at the following
    address:
    http://share.skype.com/share.skype.c...ssword_change/


    Skype. The whole world can talk for free.
    http://www.skype.com/

    DON'T WANT TO HEAR FROM US AGAIN?

    We don't want to send emails you don't want to receive, so please
    remember that you can just send an empty e-mail to the following
    address and we will never bother you again:
    mailto:unsubscribe-ctgjpW0Hezoz0A0A0CW@news.skype.com

    That's what I thought, but why would all the links be genuine to the Skype website?

    I havn't entered any details yet, maybe the site has been hacked.

    It probably is genuine as they're just releasing Skype 2.0
