Dark Skype


Skype Ltd. early today blamed an unspecified "software problem" for an outage that might make the service unavailable for as long as 24 hours. At 9 a.m. EDT Skype said the outage might last 12 to 24 hours.

Skype rarely goes offline. The last reported outage resulted in the service going dark for several hours in October 2005.
