Yahoo IM users get more than they bargained for …

Read this warning from CNET “If you’re one of the tens of millions of Yahoo users asked to upgrade your instant-messaging software this week, be on your toes: The update can open the door to unwanted PC houseguests–and setting changes–by default.”

Although this kind of marketing strategy is becoming increasingly common, I recommend that you either not install the upgrade or if you insist on installing it, at least do a custom install and elect not to have the more objectionable features installed on your computer.
