Hi Rebecca,

There has been information bothering the community of internet users patronizing which seems to be critical, that is the Skype remote vulnerability as they call it. Skype technical experts are probably doing their job to respond this trouble affecting the credibility and Skype users.

Anyway, with regards to your Error displaying an “Out of System Resources” – have you tried resetting your Skype settings? Here’s how you may do it, hopefully it will work to settle your problem. First, let us save your Skype history.

1.       Quit Skype Application (Thru manual QUIT or use of Task Manager)

2.       Go to Menu. Click Start.

3.       In the Search Tab, type %appdata% (Then Click ENTER)

4.       Wait for the Window File Explorer to come out

5.       From the Window File Explorer, find a folder named Skype.

6.       Rename your folder to something different like Skype_old.

Re-install Skype. All your data are still saved in renamed folder to Skype_old if you want to re-establish your call history.

The problem may be in a file named main.iscorrupt. This file was created when the Skype chats database history file got corrupted and this could be a major problem  because you might lose all your chat history. You have to reset all Skype settings.

First, quit from Skype or you can use Windows Task Manager to stop any Skype.exe processing. Go to the Start Menu > Run and type %appdata% then press Enter. When the file becomes Explore, locate a file named “Skypy”. Now Rename the folder as skype_old and restart Skype.

Thank you.

In older versions of Skype for Windows, Infosec researchers have discovered a vicious and exploitable security vulnerability and they called it the “stack buffer overflow” flaw. This flaw allows miscreants to inject malicious code into Windows boxes.

According to Vulnerability Laboratory, “The issue can be exploited remotely via session or by local interaction. The problem is located in the print clipboard format & cache transmit via remote session on Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. In Skype v7.37 the vulnerability is patched.” The “CVE-2017-9948” bug involves mishandling of remote RDP clipboard content within the message box.

According to Microsoft, the bug is no longer a problem for those users who already updated to the latest version. According to Vulnerability Laboratory’s Benjamin Kunz Mejri, even if Microsoft had fixed the problem with Skype 7.37, widely used versions 7.2, 7.35, and 7.36 are still vulnerable to what he described as a “critical” security issue.
