Steal Yahoo messages

Hi, my name is Nam, my Yahoo email is, I usually chat on Yahoo Messenger. Unfortunately, in this time, someone told me that they can read all of my messages I sent, although I didn't send message to them, I think they can steal my message, and all my messages have gone to this Yahoo user. Is this a sercurity hole that Yahoo hasn't solve yet? I try to scan Virus, Spyware, adware and reamove them but it usually happens like that, please help me.

    it doesn't like what you stated. He said that he could read all my messages but he couldn't change my yahoo password. first time, he said that he could read messages and know my password, and therefore I change password after he said that. second time, he said he still know my password and all my massages, but yahoo offline messages still go to my yahoo messenger. after that, he said that he can hack my yahoo using a chinese trojan with a problem of yahoo security holes. so, I change password one more time and using "Norton Antivirus 2007" with "Spyware Doctor 6" to scan and kill all viruses. Finally, he said he can read messages but cannot steal my password, he warned me there are problems of yahoo security holes and the problems are on the transfer of yahoo messages. I hope Yahoo will fix these holes. I checked all information and it's true, because he can say correctly these massages and other yahoo ID related to me. that's why I think my yahoo massages had gone also to him and also go to friends' yahoo ID I wanna send.

He might be bluffing, better make sure change your password, he might be able to steal your ym password.

You need to verify your yahoo account by going to the email you used to set it up with (usually a different one than your yahoo email) and verify that you have created the account. Once you do that you will be able to use all the features of the yahoo account.
