Fear not, people of Earth. Your weeklong national Skype nightmare is over. The essential communications app has plugged that security hole we didn't actually sweat too much over -- the one where some of your data, and your contacts data, was stored insecurely. And to show there are no hard feelings, tucked into this morning's update is "Calling over your 3G connection is available worldwide - now including the US." This opens up 3G calling to everyone, not just Verizon customers like we've seen so far.
Now doesn't that make you feel better? Snag the update in the Android Market, and we've got download links after the break.
Update: And Skype's chimed in, saying on its security blog:
We have had no reported examples of any 3rd party malicious application misusing information from the Skype directory on Android devices and will continue to monitor closely. Please rest assured that we do take your privacy and security very seriously and we sincerely apologise for any concern this issue may have caused.
