Yeah, i've contacted the Yahoo! Security Team over
the past 1/2 years with various issues that they

tell me about progress. It was only after I spoke to
a representative of Yahoo! Security and said I was
going to post all the underground security issues
with Yahoo! to FD, that I received an e-mail to say
sorry that we didn't contact you. We've been reading
-all- mails are we've been taking further action(s),
after all this time. 
I guess the same may apply for Google Security Team.
After all, Yahoo! and Google were very good
partners, up until recently. Google and Yahoo! seem
to have very quickly become rivals, with regards of
Search and  E-mail.
The things I could tell FD about Yahoo! would rock
the Yahoo! Security Team to it's foundations (and
they know it). Luckily for them, I have morals.
Yahoo! are aware of who I am, even though they know
me on another alias.


I would just like to point out that some of us who use
yahoo enjoy their security holes, if they didnt have
such security holes we move on to using something like

So please, stop telling yahoo, if they really cared,
they'd do it on their own, and don't blab to FD
either.  Why ruin everyone's fun for 2 inches of fame?

PS: FD keep sending those viruses.  I don't know what
the fuck it has to do for your cause, but it helps out
my cause ;p

Do you Yahoo!?
