Note about auto-logins on Yahoo! Messenger (Wildman)


#1

After the new authentication upgrade, they actually work! :smile:

Perhaps Yahoo! 6.0 actually decrypts the password it stores in the registry during authentication compared to 5.x, which expects the server to store the encrypted values itself.


#2

I also made lots of changes to the other auth handling code and upgraded my socket class to the same version that the latest AIM Phoenix server uses.


#3

Also cool! :smile:

ik itโ€™s not literally a passw0rd base but

why does yahoo put a hole in itโ€™s security almost all the time
