Default It'* official....I've been hacked!

If ANYONE knows how to hack into a yahoo account or knows anyone who can PLEASE help me. Someone hacked into my account a couple days ago and changed the password. They are now using my yahoo messenger to talk to people and hack their accounts. They were tlakin to my mom this morning and hacked her messenger as well. I called yahoo customer service but you have to leave a message. So I don't know how far that will get me.

If anyone one can help I would very much appreciate it....all I need done is to hack into my yahoo stuff and change my password so I can get in and change the password again....

Just get a new account, its not even worth having the same yahoo account. If they hacked it before, they will hack it again. Write yahoo and tell them to shut down that account completely.

Isn't there a way you can have them reset the account and send the new password to the e-mail on file? If not there should be...

Yea, there is a way to do that, but still, the hacker can just as easily get into again.

Why use Yahoo? All they do is install spyware and adware everytime you log on. I just cleaned mom'* PC of all the stuff they DL and I had to format to get it all. Go with one of the others if you must...

That'* strange, I had two friends who got their Yahoo accounts broken into within the past month. I wonder if it'* something widespread? I know how to get it back, but I am not going to help [legal issues on my part]. My suggestion for everyone is to change your password every 60 days, and have it be alphanumeric. Like instead of "mypassword" have it be "6my6password6." Or get the hash of your current password. That'* what I do, is let'* say I have "poopy15" as my current password, I have a little program that converts the hashes, and it gives me "vsdoinwe245" That is a bit of an exaggeration, however it is similar to that.
