I do use Skype, however I have been far less impressed with it since being acquired by Microsoft. I believe it is safe from a security aspect (I make no guarantees though), however there are often problems with specific versions and various systems, here are some recent examples: https://www.google.com/search?q=skype+7.6+problem

That is normal, some months there are no security updates. Scott.
