Are you running Yahoo! Messenger version 22.214.171.124 or earlier? If so, you need to update to the latest build of Yahoo Messenger IMMEDIATELY.
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Yahoo Messenger - simply running the software places users at risk of being hijacked simply by visiting a malicious Web page. The vulnerabilities are Yahoo! Messenger Webcam 8.1 ActiveX Remote Buffer Overflow and Yahoo! Messenger Webcam 8.1 (Ywcvwr.dll/Ywcupl.dll) Download / Execute.
A Chinese hacker has now written a tool that exploits the Yahoo! Messenger Webcam 8.1 (Ywcvwr.dll/Ywcupl.dll) Download / Execute exploit. This is what is likely to happen now; websites may be hacked and code inserted that will try to take advantage of the Yahoo! Messenger exploits. Dangerous websites may be created by hackers and spam emails sent to try and lure users into visiting dangerous sites, therefore it is imperative that all users update to the latest version of Yahoo Messenger as soon as possible.
