Skype Supernodes Self-Sabotaged

From Skype's Website as of 10:26A EST 23-DEC-2010
ZDNet's Larry Dignan reports that some versions of Skype's own software were responsible for taking down what it terms "supernodes" in its version of P2P networks. In Skype's Peter Parkes account of the outage,which ZDNet says affected service for most of December 22, their plan is to create new supernodes to offset the problem. No further explanation of the software cause was offered.
