Skype honeypot snares dirty IMers

Hot bloke-on-bloke chat action

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

NSFW Imagine this entertainment scenario: you create a female Skype profile and activate it in "Skype me" mode. Within a few minutes, IM pervs begin to sniff around your honeypot. What they don't know, though, is that they're being set up by a programme which partners two horny male IMers for an intimate conversation - one of whom thinks the other is a hot babe gagging for cybersex.

We can blame this wag for the Skype sex trap. The programme logs all of the captured IM conversations, and the author admits: "Because this is a completely automated process, everything's included, and some of these logs/messages might actually be rather boring."

Well quite. The solution, then, is for another enterprising bloke to set up a website to extract the choice highlights of these hot bloke-on-bloke chats:

Just met some Handsome Knight on Skype and want to see if he gets around? Fancy having a luagh [sic] as 2 guys try to cyber with each other? Have a sneaky feeling your boss is using Skype for more than just business calls? Then this site is for you :)

Hmmm. We reckon that what people get up to in the privacy of their Skype account is up to them. Alright then, we don't really think that, because here is a lovely example of what happens when you put two chaps together and one one thinks that the other is a chapess:

OM: hi
SR: i would like to chat with
SR: u
OM: me too babe
SR: i am XXXX from india
OM: i hope u have cam
SR: yeah
OM: do u have msn?
SR: r u m/f?
OM: m
SR:: o sorry i too male
SR: bye
OM: fuck off and change your sex
OM: u are not female
OM: you are a male
SR: i have to told u that idiot
SR: check u r profile
SR: it is writen as a female
SR: u sonof bitch
SR: fuck off

Pretty much what you'd expect - frustration and indignation resulting in swearing. For pure surreal entertainment, though, try the following which, you should be warned, contains explicit references of an sexual nature and strong language from the start:

MK: hey'

Good Lord. To be fair, if we found out that our Skype chat was being intercepted and posted with our Skype IDs on a public website, we'd probably call round to the perpetrator for some real hot bloke-on-bloke action - and we mean the kind that definitely does not involve dressing like someone from the Village People. ®
