I love skype and hate it. I hate it because people can get your IP with it. I had a case before that someone DDOSed me because of skype.
It was a person hacking my friends minecraft server and I had my minecraft going through a proxy(TOR) and he sent me a request, didn`t know it was him and bam.
It was my fault to that I shouldn`t have accepted it.
So I run Linux Mint 16 and need a way to use skype through a proxy. Thank you.
Also not to be rude or anything but I think you are way way to concern about your IP getting out there. I remember you posting multiple threads on this subject in the past and if you are getting DOS and DDOS (Highly unlikely for the latter) attacks against you that much you must be pissing some people off ;p.
