Facebook and Skype Integration creates Security Flaw

There's been some buzz about how awesome it was going to be when Skype and Facebook integrated, because we're all addicts of both, but apparently there's a flaw that could cause hacked Skype sessions or maybe even a full system takeover. There's an advisory and video posted at secalert.net, that shows how an attacker can exploit a system even if you're not a Facebook friend or a Skype contact.

Skype has said they are working on a fix to the problem.
