Yahoo! Messenger v11.5 - Buffer Overflow Vulnerability




Der Yahoo Messenger (eigene Schreibung Yahoo! Messenger, kurz auch Y!M, YIM oder Yim) ist ein verbreiteter
Instant-Messaging-Client, sowie ein Protokoll von Yahoo. Der Yahoo Messenger ist kostenlos und kann mit
einem gültigen Yahoo-Zugang heruntergeladen und installiert werden. Die Funktionen des Yahoo Messenger sind
ICQ, dem AOL Instant Messenger und dem Windows Live Messenger sehr ähnlich, sie sind zueinander aber nicht
kompatibel. Allerdings haben sich Microsoft und Yahoo entschlossen, ihre IM-Dienste zusammenzuschließen.
Seit Version 8 von Yahoo Messenger können zumindest Textnachrichten mit dem Windows Live Messenger ausgetauscht werden
