One of my friends says she's been harrassed by this dude who claimed that he could hack into any Yahoo! account. He claimed that he used to work for Yahoo! earlier and knows a lot of loop holes in Yahoo's systems. Today a couple of her ids (not just Yahoo) seem to be inaccessible and one of her accounts has been deleted. This guy apparently told her this morning that he had done it and then later deleted his own ids that he had used while communicating with her. What makes the jerk seem even more cheaper is that while harassing her, he was using another to talk to her like the friend she thought he was, till he taunted her today saying that he was the same person and he was the cause for her troubles..
But the point is, while she is sure he is the cause, I am wondering if what he claimed was possible at all? Is Yahoo's security that lax, that a "former employee" can do all this, or is he just using Yahoo's name in jest while being "techie" enough to hack and delete her accounts.... And is there anyway to report all this to Yahoo?
While, personally I don't have good things to say about Yahoo's customer service, I know that what I getting is made available to me free of all charges and Yahoo probably does better for its customers who pay. But Yahoo pays for our service using all those ads on the top of the page and possibly makes a decent profit too, so shouldn't we be treated slightly better than we are?
Would appreciate if someone had some tips on this issue on how to proceed.....
