-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

In Nov ?13 I reported a Cross-site Scripting vulnerability to the Yahoo
Bug Bounty Program. As for my other reports, I?ve got no response or
feedback,
so I wrote a message to them via email this time ... and so on ... blah
blah :)
 
To cut a long story short, for all my reports the communication with
Yahoo was really bad and of course: No bounty!
