Vonage & Skype not quite that secure
The article also claims, with a similar argument, that Skype is secure, too. Again, it's not quite that secure. Charles pointed out in #4578, as I had earlier posted in #4554, apparently credible rumours (since Skype refused to deny them) that government agencies can tap into Skype VOIP phone calls.
"Last week, Austrian broadcaster ORF, citing minutes from the meeting, reported that the Austrian police are able to listen in on Skype connections."
I'm not that worried - yet - since I doubt that any three-letter agency is out to get me. Still, our rights to privacy is continually being eroded.
