Yet another reason why IRC > Yahoo IM
If you got an IM appearing to be from me, sending you a link to look at pictures, please ignore it. If it’s too late, I recommend you change your Yahoo password. It doesn’t appear that the link is doing anything more than sending your user info and password to a Hotmail address for further IM spamming, but you might also want to run a virus and spyware check just to be on the safe side.
