Skype buttons for kopete plugin

What is the purpose of the plugin? How does the plugin work? Are there related security concerns?

Disabling or deleting the plugin is easy enough but I don't use kopete or skype and am curious about the plugin. The plugin is installed from the kdenetwork package (Slackware 14, KDE 4.8.5).

This instant messenger for KDE sounds nice but like you said you don't use skype-
It enhances messaging, message encryption and archiving.

Looks like it's for Anti-spam-

SILC plugin

Hope that helps
