    Typical what?
    DId you ask "hey how do i hack {insert client here} or did you have an intelligent question that they refusd to answer.
    by the tone of this one i would guess the former.

    No the question is do these guys (the so called hackers) use some program to manipulate the Java chat clients and if so how do they do this? I am a webdesigner and I want to know how I can prevent this on my clients websites

    Thanks in advance

    xamurai79, if you phrased your question in chat the way you initially did here, thats probably why they kicked you out. We're all here to learn, but if you're going to ask a question be as specific as possible. While I cannot answer your question, I would suggest that you browse the tutorials forum or use the search feature with JAVA as a keyword. I know thats not the answer you wanted to see, but hopefully I've gotten you started in the right direction. If you are truely looking for security information, you've come to the right place. Good luck!

    xamurai79, I used to frequent the Yahoo! Hacker Lounge, and people would ask the same exact question as you (well other than your usual gambit of "How do I hack {insert free mail service here}?"). I took the liberty of looking these up. Over the years, there have been holes and exploits they would use to kick people out like flooding the screen with extended ASCII symbols and would therefore crash the client, send a PM with characters as said above, use bots (some yahoo hack clients did that), and many other tricks. However, since I have not been there in almost a year and a half, I have no idea what tricks they are using.

    I am sure they have sploits for the new Yahoo Messenger Chat client. As we all know more features=more holes to be discovered especially if files can be sent, font/font sizes can be changed, or arbitrary code can be executed in some way. My best advice for you is to make sure you NEVER accept any invitations, PM's, files from people you do not know, keep using that handy "ignore" feature, change passwords (and keep GOOD passwords) to avoid crackers going into your Yahoo! Mail if you use it, and do not give any personal info about yourself no matter how much of a buddy they say they are.

    Good Luck!

    well since you just got flamed straight to hell. im gonna give you a descent answer. you simply got booted by a prog (known as booters) the progs are quite easy to make in visual basic they can have a lot of skiddie and pretty lame options like boots and scrollers and laggers they can add my name to your yahoo friends list fulling it to max. can make your IE go nuts by shutting it down or by making it dl just about any of your own files to your desktop. there are java boot codes for the java chat sites too that can pretty much do the same. these are really easy progs to makee if you understand winsock programming in vb . a few sites that are big on this are www.eliteprodigy.com ( coldfyr3 even made his own yahoo chat client) and www.yahpro.org boots and protection can be found at both sites stay alive pro is also great protection as it stops your apps from crashing such as messenger while your getting booted . the boot codes change constantly as yahoo tries to keep up with patching the exploits being used there are literaly thousands of yahoo progs for booting or for crackin id's if you got any questions on this subject you can pm me here or on the same id on yahoo as i have made used and understand how these progs work....
