Do I need to update Yahoo! Messenger to the new version?
Yes, if you are using a version of the All New Yahoo! Messenger obtained before March 13, 2007 on a Windows PC
What is the security issue?
Yahoo! recently identified a security issue, commonly referred to as a buffer overflow in an ActiveX control. This control is part of the Yahoo! Messenger audio conferencing code.
Who is affected?
Yahoo! Messenger users who inadvertently view malicious HTML code on an attacker's website. If your computer has installed Yahoo! Messenger before March 13, 2007, you should install the update.
