    Yahoo BoF

    back in october there was an exploit that came out for Yahoo and i warned folks here about it. At that time i was told it was nothing to worry about because yahoo IM auto updates...not this time:


    "I already contacted Yahoo couple days ago...
    .......After reading your email, I removed my YIM and downloaded the new one
    from their
    website and you are right; the newest version is not vulnerable.
    there is NO WAY to upgrade from 5.6.0.xxxx to except you
    YIM; and of course Yahoo doesn't tell anybody about it either.

    If you go to you will see
    there is
    no update for this vulnerability. Again, the only way to patch it is
    reinstall YIM


    read about it:
    Bukhari:V3B48N826 The Prophet said, Isnt the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man? The women said, Yes. He said, This is because of the deficiency of a womans mind.

    hmm.. a bit disturbing when yahoo doesn't respond.. I actually use YIM but only with a handful of trusted friends.. stopped using messengers except for rare times long ago. I think I won't be concerned right now but a few of my friends might be.. so thanks for the heads up.
