+ - Linguistics cracks Skype calls->

Submitted by mikejuk
mikejuk (1801200) writes "You might think of linguistics as being interesting but not really useful. Now computational linguistics has been used to crack Skype encryption and reconstruct what is being said in a VoIP call.
What is surprising is that though they are encrypted, the frames that make up a Skype call contain clues about what phonemes are being spoken."
