Yeah, Yahoo is borked and they aren’t saying why. I’ve contacted them – and I am getting silence for a response. I’ve not been able to check my mail in a few days, nor have I been able to login to IM.
I don’t know what is going on. When I attempt to login, it tells me my password is incorrect. I go to change it and it tells me that my information is invalid. I don’t know what is going on but I do know that I am getting highly irritated.

I had the same problem with yahoo for a few months off and on. For a few days they wouldn’t let me check email and claimed that all my information was wrong then it’d work fine then do it again. I gave up on it and now use a different email program for my needs.
Try uninstalling and then reinstalling, after you’ve updated your antivirus software. That worked for me a few times in the past.
Me too…dunno if you read my LJ, and too. It’s weird.
I’ve had that happen with past Yahoo IDs. They’re too big to care, apparently…
Actually, this makes me nervous. My small-business e-mail and webhosting is with Yahoo. If they bork my business ID (voiceovers), I’m boned.
-Well, looks like the hacker was on Mare’s account today, starting around 11:38am, and off at 12:05pm or so. If ANYONE knows how to track down said human filth, -please- post an email or means of contact or some avenue of assistance…
Re: “J” sez…
-BTW, the hacker is STILL playing around w/Mare’s account, or the Yahoo folks have decided it’s valuable enough to steal from her…
if you can’t login to the webpage, the problem is on their end. or, someone hijacked your account. no password recovery feature?
edit: i dont read gud
if you can get the hacker to visit a webpage, you could get an IP, which you could use to get to an ISP (whois) and contact them. If you’re feeling particularly vengeful, you can probably track him down to a city using a visual tracert tool.
