Skype Answering Machine

by Volker Weber

SAM is a simple voice answering machine for PC Skype users. When you are away from your PC and there is no one to answer your incoming calls, SAM will pick up the call, play a greeting message and the "all-time clasic beep" so that the calling party will leave a voice recorded message.

just found this entry regarding a security issue related to Skype in connection with SAM:

bottom line: someone left a message with a Skype user who was on a conference call - everyone on that call could hear the guy (who thought he would just leave a message) ... and he himself could hear the whole gang on the conference call. Hmmmm.
