Skype fixed supernodes list?

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Georg Schwarz, Jul 10, 2010.

  1. Included with the recently published sample code for Skype encrtyption,
    there's also a list of Skype server IPs:
    http://cryptolib.com/ciphers/skype/skype_servers.txt
    It reads "Fixed skype supernodes (from skype.exe v4.2.0.169), use
    obfuscated RC4".
    Does this mean that those IP addresses are hardcoded in the Skype binary
    as defaults/initial values? That would be a bit wiered since some of
    those addresses belong to universities, most of them in Europe.
    Or is this just a snapshot of a snapshot of a dynamic list of supernode
    IPs which is not hard-coded in the binary?
