    Lol dayajotkaur, I think he was referring to my article!

    This trojan has been listed in symantec! And since Yahoo messenger is a standalone program, and it is the windows IM functions that has been attacked, I doubt Yahoo can do much!

    The most they could do is release an upgrade or a patch, but then it would conflict with other services. And I doubt many would bother to download it!
