Skype vs. SIP

There is an article in The Register which quotes Rohan Mahy challenging Skype. Rohan echoes some of the points I made in "Skype is no different". But I do not share his concerns regarding security. He feels rogue programs can infect a computer through Skype API. This is premature because the full scope of the API is yet to be released. A SIP client (like Windows messenger) can also provide API with the corresponding security holes.

I strongly feel that Skype is fundamentally equivalent to SIP based implementations. This means, if SIP is free of security issues then Skype also can be made free of security issues.
