    Is yahoo Messenger still vulnerable?

    I wonder if Yahoo messenger still vulnerable with its new version? And is there any " small programme" to exploit buffer over flow in this version?

    Still vulnerable to what, exactly?

    Have you checked Bugtraq to see if there are any vulnerabilities associated with the newest version of Yahoo Messenger?

    How about reading the changelog to see what's fixed?

    I mean, in the previous version. when everybody chat with other poeple. "Other" can use some software to popup many of other window to make the other one's box hang up.
    May be the newest version don't infected about that.

    And where is the Bugtraq? I don't know where I can find the Bugtraq? Did you mean in this website?

    http://www.securityfocus.com/ hosts bugtraq. You can sign up for a mail list if you'd like.

    And a changelog is usually a text file in the program directory that explains what has been "fixed" for the latest version.
