A new bug that crashes Skype almost all client versions of it including both desktop and mobiles with a simple message

Just Send ‘http://:’ and Crash Skype

This bug is so bad that it forces the user to re-install Skype to work again.

According to Skype Forms “If a user receives a message during a conversation on Skype containing the text string “http://:”  it crashes Skype when running on Windows, Android, or iOS operating system”

Unfortunately there’s no solution to fix this problem. Trying to delete your chat won’t work since Skype will download every time you start the app.

According to a Spokesperson for Skype said that “We are aware of the problem and are working to provide an resolution.”

To over come this problem you need to ask the user who send you the text message to delete it, and then install an older version of Skype, bug-free version of Skype. Let’s stay quite and wait for the engineers to fix Skype bug.

    In order to start skype again you have to erase this message from the database (main.db) in %appdata%/Skype/USERNAME.
