Yahoo Messenger is one of the popular IM and a couple of days ago they have updated to 8.1.0.415 version but today there is a new updated version of Yahoo Messenger which is version 8.1.0.416. From the Yahoo Messenger security update website, they have found out a vulnerability of Yahoo! Webcam. They pointed out that there are two security issues in the webcam function and most commonly referred to as DOS attack (denial-of-service attack) and buffer overflow.

What is a denial-of-service?

  • A denial-of-service attack (also, DoS attack) is an attack on a computer system or network that causes a loss of service to users, typically the loss of network connectivity and services by consuming the bandwidth of the victim network or overloading the computational resources of the victim system.
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service

From Yahoo Security website:

Some impacts of a buffer overflow might include the introduction of executable code, being involuntarily logged out of a Chat and/or Instant Messaging session, and the crash of an application such as Yahoo! Messenger. For this specific security issue, these impacts could only be possible if an attacker is successful in prompting the Messenger user to accept a webcam invitation.

Therefore, I strongly suggest to all of Yahoo Messenger users to update their Yahoo Messenger as soon as possible. Just go to Yahoo Messenger website and download it.
